‘Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein succeeded in doing it, but very few others. Now Stephen Baxter joins their exclusive ranks – writing science fiction in which the science is right, the author knowledgeable, and the extrapolations a sheer pleasure to read, admire, enjoy. The reaction is that which C.S. Lewis referred to when he described science fiction as the only genuine consciousness-expanding drug. Flux is a highly imaginative and moving novel .. It is a rare thing to find such a good read. Wonderful stuff!’
Harry Harrison, New Scientist
‘Flux puts Stephen Baxter in the front line of world-spinners.’
From the Back Cover
Star Humans are microscopic, but their hopes and fears, and loves, are not. And the future of humans everywhere, on Earth and among the stars, depends on their courage in the face of attack by the mighty Xeelee, owners of the Universe.
A novel of the Xeelee sequence from the acknowledged heir to the visionary legacy of Clarke and Wells, heralding a new Golden Age in science fiction.
“The best SF author in Britain.”
“'Flux' puts Stephen Baxter in the top league of world-spinners.”
