Reviews

"A terrific treat. I was hooked from page one. Billion-year-gone alien wars, killer intelligences-and perhaps the most stunning and original alien artifact in modern science fiction-and all rendered with the authentic voice of a working scientist. Ferociously intelligent and imbued with a chilling logic-it may really be like this Out There."--Stephen Baxter on Revelation Space
"A delight. A refreshing and entertaining reconsideration of some of the genre's oldest tropes. An impressive first novel, quite possibly the space opera of the year."--Locus on Revelation Space
"Something new and exciting...absolutely first-rate."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer on Revelation Space
"This is science fiction on a large, cosmological scale, and Reynolds does not lack in big ideas...Many of the ideas in Revelation Space are awe-inspiring...cutting-edge and convincingly rendered."--SF Site on Revelation Space
"[A] sci-fi tour de force... Clearly intoxicated by cutting-edge scientific research in bioengineering, space physics, cybernetics Reynolds spins a ravishingly inventive tale of intrigue."--Publishers Weekly on Revelation Space
