Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Benford] brings out the complexities of a galactic empire that Asimov never filled out..the first book stands well on its own.""-- Denver Post "[Benford] took on the huge task of answering questions [raised in the original], and difficult as it may sound, he pulled it off with style...Rest assured, Asimov's work is in good hands." -- Craig E. Engler Editor and Publisher of "Science Fiction Weekly "A richly rewarding delight.Benford writes up to his usual high standard and excels in bringing Asimovian concepts.to vivid, visually compelling life.""-- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Intriguing and engrossing.[a] curious blend of reinventions and retrospective criticism." -- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Gregory Benford, author of top-selling novels, including Jupiter Project, Artifact, Against Infinity, Eater, and Timescape, is that unusual creative combination of scientist scholar and talented artist; his stories capture readers – hearts and minds – with imaginative leaps into the future of science and of us.

A University of California faculty member since 1971, Benford has conducted research in plasma turbulence theory and experiment, and in astrophysics. His published scientific articles include well over a hundred papers in fields of physics from condensed matter, particle physics, plasmas and mathematical physics, and several in biological conservation.

Often called hard science fiction, Benford's stories take physics into inspired realms. What would happen if cryonics worked and people, frozen, were awoken 50 years in the future? What might we encounter in other dimensions? How about sending messages across time? And finding aliens in our midst? The questions that physics and scientists ask, Benford's imagination explores.

With the re-release of some of his earlier works and the new release of current stories and novels, Benford takes the lead in creating science fiction that intrigues and amuses us while also pushing us to think.
