Review

A masterpiece of rock-hard SF (SUN)

Cleverly argued and uncomfortably plausible (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Brin tackles a plethora of cutting-edge concepts... with the skill of a visionary futurologist ... [conveying] the depth and breadth of his startling future. Existence is Brin's first novel in 10 years, and it's been well worth the wait (GUARDIAN)

Existence is bursting with ideas, including near-future tech, first contact with aliens, and the exploration of what it means to be human (io9.com)

EXISTENCE may be Brin's masterwork (LOS ANGELES REVIEW OF BOOKS)

An impressive introduction to one of SF's major talents (Publishers Weekly)

The seriously clever Brin has spent a lot of time thinking about big questions - and has devised a highly original yet plausible version of alien contact (BBC Sky at Night)

In Existence, David Brin takes on one of the fundamental themes in science fiction - and what is also one of the fundamental questions humanity faces in this century. Since Brin is both a great storyteller and one of the most imaginative writers around, Existence is not to be missed (Vernor Vinge)

Take a world soaked in near-future strangeness and complexity . . . Add a beautiful alien artifact that turns out to be the spearpoint of a very dangerous, very ancient invasion . . . Hotwire with wisdom and wonder . . . Existence is as urgent and as relevant as anything by Stross or Doctorow, but with the cosmic vision of Bear or Benford. Brin is back (Stephen Baxter)

Book Description

A groundbreaking, mind-blowingly ambitious new science fiction novel from the multiple award-winning classic author David Brin
