With this epic tale of altered histories and different earths, a universe where Alexander's empire prompted a different past, a world where strange alien 'eyes' gaze upon a fractured reality, a time when man is looking to colonise the red planet Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter scale new heights of ambition and sheer story telling brio.
This is classic SF adventure from two of the biggest names in the genre. A heady combination of high concept SF, big engineering projects and human drama.

"This is good, solid, hard SF, coming from a base of realism: the physics is speculative but as accurate as possible, as is the high-tech equipment. It's a strain of SF rarely done well these days: technology projected forward into a plausible future. It¿s a classic Arthur C. Clarke approach. Classic, if somewhat old-fashioned, science fiction thrills of the plausible future kind." (DREAMWATCH)
'Firstborn concludes the Times Odyssey trilogy - with the blend of hard scientific speculation, gripping narrative and cosmic sense of wonder that always marked Arthur C Clarke's science-fiction novels. An enjoyable read." (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)
Solidly traditional SF. (Dave Langford SFX)
"Clarke and Baxter deliver that sense of wonder which has always been one of the things we read science fiction for. And for once the wonderful mysteries of the plot remain magical even after they've been explained." (TIME OUT Roz Kaveney)
"Firstborn is a rousing adventure, full of convincing near-future detail and a proper Clarkian sense of wonder. The enthusiasm for exploring, spreading out, solving puzzles and building a better future are relentless. Be compassionate, it says, but be clever - and never give up. It's a fitting capstone to Arthur C Clarke's writing life." (DEATHRAY)
Two of the biggest names in SF together again, with the third of the acclaimed Time's Odyssey sequence
