Review:

a novel that works brilliantly as a space adventure and also reads, touchingly, almost as an atheist's reflection on why a kind of optimistic agnosticism may be a useful approach to finding contentment (SFX)

'Some spellbinding shorter fiction'. (SFX)

Above all else, Beyond the Aquila Rift is full of wonders. You can find them in every story, reminding me why I love Alastair Reynolds' novels so much. (FOR WINTER NIGHTS)

It's grand, involving and full of light and wonder. Poseidon's Wake is one of the best sci-fi novels of the year (Sci-Fi Now)

his finest moment yet and a glorious conclusion of the trilogy. A wonderful book and best that British SF has to offer at the moment (Upcoming 4 Me)

Although a long book, with so much story to fit in there is a brevity to the text which makes it an easy read which can be enjoyed as a standalone even though it satisfactorily revisits and resolves the majority of the threads from the previous novels (Geek Chocolate)

a well realised sci-fi universe, with plausible character (SF&F Reviews)

Having completed the trilogy I now want to return to its beginning and re-read. Alastair Reynolds is one of my very favourite authors, every book is a much-anticipated event, and withPoseidon's Wake he shows yet again why that is. I loved every single page. (For Winter's Nights)

Transhumans, talking elephants, inscrutable aliens and good old fashioned spaceship fights all contribute to a breathtaking adventure (THE SUN)

A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF (The Guardian)

Book Description:

A superb collection of short fiction from 'the mastersinger of space opera' THE TIMES
