Product description


‘The most important living science-fiction writer in the country’

‘The best SF writer in Britain’

Praise for The Xeelee Sequence:

‘Polishes its ideas with such realistic brilliance you can see a whole civilization in it’

‘Fast paced, strong on suspense, efficiently written, and has moral weight, but it is in the creation of a genuinely strange and believable new universe that Baxter excels… rigorous, vigorous SF at its enjoyable best’

‘Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein succeeded in doing it, but very few others. Now Stephen Baxter joins their exclusive ranks – writing science fiction in which the science is right, the author knowledgeable, and the extrapolations a sheer pleasure to read, admire, enjoy’

‘Almost perfect… RAFT is very, very hard SF and it’s great fun’
