Editorial Reviews

Review

"This novel's ideas are mind-stretching, including a limbo where copies of the dead can be kept and interrogated, and a chillingly mischievous AI that tempts and mocks Dreyfus. The big concepts and complex story effectively pull readers into intriguing speculation about human identity and potential."―Publishers Weekly

"Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages."―Booklist

"Elysium Fire is a tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story and characters you'll come to care about."―The Guardian (UK)

"A swashbuckling thriller--Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly--that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterization."―The Guardian on Revenger

"Revenger is classic Reynolds-that is to say, top of the line science fiction, where characters are matched beautifully with ideas and have to find their place in a complex future. More!"―Greg Bear on Revenger

"A leading light of the new British space opera."
Los Angeles Review of Books on Alastair Reynolds

"One of the giants of the new British space opera."
io9 on Alastair Reynolds

"[Reynolds is] a mastersinger of the space opera."
The Times (UK) on Blue Remembered Earth

"Heir to writers like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, Reynolds keeps up the tradition of forward thinking... An immensely thrilling, mind-bending piece of work."
AV Club on House of Suns

"[Reynolds] is the most gifted hard SF writers working today."
Publishers Weekly on Beyond the Aquila Rift --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
