‘The best SF author in Britain’
‘Baxter recalls the most visionary moments of Wells and Clark… constructs a human-scale drama out of the most far-reaching implications of current cosmological theory… makes E Doc Smith look like a minimalist.’
‘Baxter sends into free-fall the most awesome ideas in science fiction today… What makes these ideas assimilable is the prism of people through which they are refracted… good SF reveals the mortal host in the machine.’
THE XEELEE SEQUENCE
Stephen Baxter’s history of the universe
While the human race struggles against alien oppressors, an even greater epic battle rages between the deadly dark-matter photino birds and their implacable enemy, the Xeelee …
These marvellous linked stories bring Baxter’s widely praised future history to the door at the end of time and space … which has been opened by the fabulous Xeelee, the ultimate sentient beings, the most astonishing engineers of all time.
“Baxter sends into free-fall the most awesome ideas in science fiction today”
“ … the reaction is that which C.S. Lewis referred to when he described science fiction as the only genuine consciousness expanding drug”
“A fine and important collection”
“A luminous collection … Baxter can overwhelm you with a traditional SF ‘sense of wonder’ until your jaw drops”
“This book’s depth almost produces vertigo – a classic in the making”
