Product description

Review

Century Rain is a darkly brilliant love story, set in worlds we think we know but don't. (Jon Courtenay Grimwood GUARDIAN)

"Further proof that he is shaping up into one of SF's best and most ambitious novelists". (Jonathan Wright SFX)

This is an intelligent space opera (Roz Kaveney Time Out)

"Century Rain is an absolute cracker of a novel. Reynolds has always been a consistently bright star in the firmament of British sci-fi but now he has suddenly, perhaps unexpectedly, gone supernova. (OUTLAND OTTAKAR'S)

Century Rain is an exciting, thought-provoking novel, an audacious synthesis of genre forms. Alastair Reynolds is now in his novelistic prime. (Nick Gevers LOCUS)

While science ficiton and mystery have often been combined, no writer has done so with such intelligence or originality as Alastair Reynolds. In a single novel, he steps from the mean streets to the far future." (Rick Kleffel Interzone)

Century Rain demonstrates the growing maturity of his talent (Edge Magazine)

Leaves you wishing that more science fiction was this good. A genuinely great book. (Brigid Cherry Dreamwatch)

With Century Rain, Alastair Reynolds continues the coruscating path he has blazed through SF skies. This a whopping 500-pager, brimming with ideas. (Barry Seddon Manchester Evening News) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
