Review

Praise for Eifelheim& nbsp;
"Carl Sagan meets Umberto Eco. . . .Bursting with pungent historical detail and Big Theme musings, this dense, provocative novel offers big rewards to patient readers." -- Entertainment Weekly
& nbsp;
" Heartbreaking . . . .Flynn masterfully achieves an intricate panorama of medieval life, full of fascinatingly realized human and Krenken characters whose fates interconnect with poignant irony. " -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
& nbsp;
" Meticulously researched, intense, mesmerizing novel . . .& nbsp; for readers seeking thoughtful science fiction of the highest order. " -- Kirkus, starred review
& nbsp;
" Wonderful, mesmerizing. & nbsp; A finely-written and deeply considered SF novel that deserves to stand with the classics in the field. " & nbsp; & nbsp; --Robert Charles Wilson, award-winning author of Spin
& nbsp; & nbsp;
" Eifelheim may turn out to be the best science fiction novel this year." --Orson Scott Card, author of Empire
" Eifelheim is one of those very occasional novels that you know early on you will never forget. A powerhouse. " - Jack McDevitt

" With a sure grasp of both speculative science and medievalhistory, Flynn& nbsp; compellingly weaves past and present together in a dialog of faith and science. With neat turns of plot and intriguing medieval and modern characters, this book, parts of which were previously published as a novella, belongs in even small libraries. Highly recommended. " - Library Journal, starred review
" Michael Flynn's Eifelheim is a gripping multi-layered masterpiece, which pulls off the extraordinary feat of imagining a convincing first contact with aliens that might have taken place in 1348, and adds an equally convincing account of the manner in which the event might be rediscovered by a 21st-century historian. The intricate detective story is supplemented by a heartfelt moral commentary on the manner in which the contact was negotiated and the crucial significance it retains, in spite of having been forgotten for nearly 700 years. " - Brian Stableford & nbsp; " Eifelheim is a truly impressive and enjoyable novel." -- Stanley Schmidt
