9780441016006: Galactic North

In a triumphant return to the Revelation Space universe, the author declared by SFX to be “one of SF’s best and most ambitious novelists” offers his first collection. With eight short stories and novellas—including three never before seen— Galactic North imparts the centuries-spanning events that have produced this dark and turbulent world...
 
Centuries from now, solidarity stretches thin as humanity spreads past the solar system and to the nearest stars. Technology has produced powerful new tools—but lethal risk will always accompany great advancement.
 
And without foresight, opposing groups may fracture multiple worlds. Between the Demarchists and the Conjoiners, the basic right to expand human intelligence—beyond its natural limits—has become a war-worthy cause. Only vast lighthugger starships bind these squabbling colonies together, manned by the panicky and paranoid Ultras. And the hyperpigs just try to keep their heads down.
 
The rich get richer. And everyone tries not to think about the worrying number of extinct alien civilizations turning up on the outer reaches of settled space...because who’s to say that humanity won’t be next?

About the Author:

Alastair Reynolds is the author of The Poseidon’s Children series (Blue Remembered Earth, On the Steel Breeze, Poseidon’s Wake), and the Revelation Space novels (The PrefectAbsolution GapRedemption Ark). He was born in Wales in 1966 and has a PhD in astronomy. From 1991 to 2007, he lived in the Netherlands, where he was employed by the European Space Agency as an astrophysicist. He is now a full-time writer and lives in South Wales with his wife, Josette.

Review:

"A very worth while collection, with hints of what may be coming in future novels. Dark, vicious science fiction." STARBURST "The UK's pre-eminent hard- sci-fi author of the past decade. Let's hope Reynolds has plenty more mind space to explore." EDGE "The stories are written with real energy. Dark, satirical and frequently dystopian. This is gothic SF with gore as Reynolds ensures his taut narratives grip from the first sentence." -- Jonathan Wright SFX "Dark, gothic and graphic, with tightly composed narratives full of shocks and jaw-dropping moments. Atmosphere and economically-drafted characters are as important as the big ideas." -- Dave Golder BBC FOCUS
