About the Author

Vernor Vinge has won five Hugo Awards, two of them in the Zones of Thought series: A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky. Known for his rigorous hard-science approach to his science fiction, he became an iconic figure among cybernetic scientists with the publication in 1981 of his novella True Names, which is considered a seminal, visionary work of Internet fiction. His many books also include Marooned in Realtime, Rainbows End and The Peace War.

Reviews

"A masterful novel, complex in style and plot, heavy with science and social speculation . . . . Vinge is truly an original writer." --NOVA Express on A Deepness in the Sky

"Thoughtful space opera at its best, this book delivers everything it promises in terms of galactic scope, audacious concepts, and believable characters both human and nonhuman." --The New York Times Book Review on Fire Upon the Deep

"True science fiction and a delight." --Publishers Weekly on True Names

"No summary can do justice to the depth and conviction of Vinge's ideas." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on A Fire Upon the Deep
