Product description

Review

"This is good, solid, hard SF, coming from a base of realism: the physics is speculative but as accurate as possible, as is the high-tech equipment. It's a strain of SF rarely done well these days: technology projected forward into a plausible future. It¿s a classic Arthur C. Clarke approach. Classic, if somewhat old-fashioned, science fiction thrills of the plausible future kind." (DREAMWATCH)

'Firstborn concludes the Times Odyssey trilogy - with the blend of hard scientific speculation, gripping narrative and cosmic sense of wonder that always marked Arthur C Clarke's science-fiction novels. An enjoyable read." (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)

Solidly traditional SF. (Dave Langford SFX)

"Clarke and Baxter deliver that sense of wonder which has always been one of the things we read science fiction for. And for once the wonderful mysteries of the plot remain magical even after they've been explained." (TIME OUT Roz Kaveney)

"Firstborn is a rousing adventure, full of convincing near-future detail and a proper Clarkian sense of wonder. The enthusiasm for exploring, spreading out, solving puzzles and building a better future are relentless. Be compassionate, it says, but be clever - and never give up. It's a fitting capstone to Arthur C Clarke's writing life." (DEATHRAY) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
