9780006482239: Helliconia Trilogy

The great drama of life on Helliconia is shaped by its cosmic limitations. In fierce contrasts of climate, whole seasons last for centuries and civilizations rise and fall as the planet orbits the giant sun Freyr every 3000 years. The trilogy won the J.W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Review:

'For decades, Brian Aldiss has been among our most prolific and consistently stylish writers' The Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ONE VOLUME
THE GREAT YEAR OF HELLICONIA

A planet of binary suns, Helliconia has a Great Year spanning three millennia of Earth time: cultures are born in spring, flourish in summer, then die with the onset of the generations – long winter. The Helliconia books are Brian Aldiss's compelling masterwork.

"Propels the reader headlong into marvel. A trilogy which has acquired monumental nobility"
THE TIMES

"Science fiction has never before had this grandeur"
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

"Brian Aldiss's towering imagination places his Helliconia Trilogy far above standard science fiction"
DAILY MAIL
