Product description

Review

WINNER OF THE BSFA, JOHN W. CAMPBELL AND PHILIP K. DICK AWARDS

‘I’m almost tempted to say (I know this is blasphemy) that the sequel is better than the original …’
Arthur C. Clark

‘Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein succeeded in doing it, but very few others. Now Stephen Baxter joins their exclusive ranks. The reaction is that which C. S. Lewis referred to when he described science fiction as the only genuine consciousness-expanding drug.’
NEW SCIENTIST

‘Stephen Baxter really does stand on the shoulders of giants in order to see further than they did … THE TIME SHIPS is a brilliant piece of work. It is a sequel in the best possible sense’
INTERZONE

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

‘The best SF writer in Britain’
SFX
