Review

"Succeeds admirably!" -- The New York Times

"Here at last, the big Anderson book we've all been waiting for! An unforgettable novel, with a cast as big as mankind and an adventure that charts the course of time. Read it, enjoy it, savor it...this may well be the best book of the year, hell, decade."---Jerry Pournelle

"This is the book we've all been waiting for!"--Joe Haldeman
