Product description


[A] wildly imaginative genre stretcher. {Reynolds] tells his tale with such verve that you just keep turning the pages. (Nevill Hawcock FINANCIAL TIMES)

A rousing adventure in a widly original setting. (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)

This is sci-fi as an intellectual balancing act. We're offered airborne battles and plenty of action too. It's almost the most convincing steampunk novel you'll ever read. (Jonathan Wright SFX)

There are flashes of the energy that drives the big sequences in the Revelation Space trilogy. (Maureen Kincaid Speller INTERZONE)

Book Description

TERMINAL WORLD is a snarling, drooling, crazy-eyed mongrel of a book: equal parts steampunk, western, planetary romance and far-future SF.
