Revelation Space Summary

Revelation Space: The Best of the SF Masterworks by Alastair Reynolds

Nine hundred thousand years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin.

For the humans now settling the Amarantin homeworld, it's of little more than academic interest, even after the discovery of a long-hidden, almost perfect city and a colossal statue of a winged Amarantin.

For brilliant, ruthless scientist Dan Sylveste, it's more than merely intellectual curiosity - and he will stop at nothing to get at the truth. Even if it costs him everything.

But the Amarantin were wiped out for a reason, and that danger is closer and greater than even Syveste imagines . . .

The original novel in the epic series, Revelation Space was nominated for both the BSFA and Arthur C. Clarke awards. Reynolds' PhD in astronomy and experience with the ESA means that his space operas present hard science spins on intergalactic adventures and have impacted SF for years.

'The stories in the Revelation Space universe are packed with mind-expanding ideas . . . all of which keeps you coming back for more gripping excitement' - Kirkus
'Reynolds's vision of a future dominated by artificial intelligence trembles with the ultimate cold of the dark between the stars' - Publishers Weekly
'Along with Iain M Banks, Reynolds is perhaps the most successful British Space Opera author of his generation' - Encyclopedia of Science Fiction


Welcome to The Best Of The Masterworks: a selection of the finest in science fiction
