Product description

Review

"Oh, what worldbuilding! Schroeder is a master."--Cory Doctorow"Lushly realized . . . "Queen of Candesce" has a backdrop that's simultaneously steampunk and space opera, a complex and believably flawed lead character, and plenty of action and intrigue.""--Interzone""With "Queen of Candesce", Karl Schroeder's Virga saga establishes itself as an SF saga of the same order as LeGuin's Earthsea series, Asimov's Robot stories, and Niven's Ringworld stories.""--SFRevu""Over the years, science-fiction has provided us with awesome environments, the best ones based on careful logic. There was Hal Clement's "Mission of Gravity" and Robert Forward's "Dragon's Egg". Karl Schroeder's new novel is in a class with these masterpieces."--Vernor Vinge on "Sun of Suns"
