'What a saga! Scifi with honest, complex humanity, physics, biology, sociology' Tom Hanks

'Aurora is a magnificent piece of writing, certainly Robinson's best novel since his mighty Mars trilogy, perhaps his best ever' Guardian

Our voyage from Earth began generations ago.

Now, we approach our destination.

A new home.

Aurora.

Brilliantly imagined and beautifully told, Aurora is the work of a writer at the height of his powers.

'An accessible novel packed with big ideas, wonders, jeopardy and, at the end, a real emotional punch' SFX

'Aurora is Robinson's best book yet . . . Heart-wrenching, provocative' Scientific American

'Kim Stanley Robinson is one of science fiction's greats' Sunday Times

Review:

A rousing tribute to the human spirit. (SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE)

[Robinson is] a rare contemporary writer to earn a reputation on par with earlier masters such as Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke. (CHICAGO TRIBUNE)

Humanity's first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in Aurora. (SPACE.COM)

This is hard SF the way it's mean to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully realized society. Robinson is an acknowledged sf master-his Mars trilogy and his stand-alone novel 2312 (2012) were multiple award winners and nominees-and this latest novel is sure to be a big hit with devoted fans of old-school science fiction. (BOOKLIST)

A magnificent piece of writing . . . perhaps his best ever (Guardian)

Another masterpiece of future-building from Robinson . . . compelling drama (Financial Times)

The kind of speculation that he is quite brilliant at . . . Magnificent

(Sunday Times)

An accessible novel packed with big ideas, wonders, jeopardy and, at the end, a real emotional punch (SFX)

Aurora is Robinson's best book yet . . . Heart-wrenching, provocative (Scientific American)

The best book I read in 2015 (Cory Doctorow)

From the Author:

Kim Stanley Robinson is a winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards. He is the author of over twenty previous books, including the acclaimed Mars trilogy and the New York Times besteller, 2312. He lives in Davis, California.
