Product description

Review

Praise for Terminal World

"Ingenuous and vivid settings...exotic scenery, special effects, set pieces--it's going to take some fancy dancing for the author to top this one!"--Locus

"It might be hard to understand how Alastair Reynolds, known for his imaginative galaxy-spanning space operas, would fare in other genres of science fiction like steampunk. Terminal World might be as close as you get to finding out."--SF Signal

"A wildly imaginative genre stretcher. [Reynolds] tells his tale with such verve that you just keep turning the pages."--Financial Times

"Hairsbreadth escapes, gutsy fight scenes, unfeasible coincidences throughout the rest of the novel and one or two moments where Reynolds does achieve an authentic sense of wonder."--SF Site

"A rousing adventure in a wildly original setting."--The Guardian (UK)

"The pages are filled with alarums and adventures, reversals, betrayal and frightening experiences--as many as one would hope for from a planetary romance. Quillon builds genuine relationships after leaving Spearpoint [and] as he is able to acknowledge his own nature, overcomes default hatred of his type and becomes a valued member of his society."--Strange Horizons

"An intellectual balancing act...airborne battles...plenty of action, too. It's almost the most convincing steampunk novel you'll ever read."--SFX

About the Author

Alastair Reynolds is the author of the Poseidon's Children series and the Revelation Space series. Born in Barry, South Wales, he studied at Newcastle University and the University of St. Andrews. A former astrophysicist for the European Space Agency, he now writes full-time.
