Product description


" "A Deepness in the Sky" more than justifies the old tag 'eagerly anticipated.' It's a space opera dealing with the age-old themes of exploration, first contact, different cultures, exploitation and, inevitably, conflict. An intriguing and mind-stretching epic. Highly recommended."

" When I was young and had to write my address in a school notebook, I would begin with my street and apartment number and then go on through city, county, state, country and continent in a litany of ever more grandiose place names that did not end until I reached ' Earth, Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy, The Universe.' In those days, it thrilled me that my small corner of the Bronx was just a one part of the vastness I could see in the sky at night. This is the feeling I got from reading "A Fire Upon the Deep" by Vernor Vinge."
--Gerald Jonas, "New York"" Times Book Review"

" "Marooned in Realtime "is a cracking good story that leaves the reader with plenty to think about. Vernor Vinge draws fine characters and writes a compelling plot. In the end, almost all the mysteries are solved-- the only loose ends are those which will leave you pondering the future of Mankind and of the earth for weeks after you finish the book"
--"The ""Baltimore"" Sun"
