Review

A charismatic, inventive story of space travel and discovery (SFX)

A beautiful piece of stylish writing. . . Gripping and convincing (STARBURST)

Ken MacLeod outdoes himself with Learning the World. . . don't miss this one (ANALOG)

Mind-expanding science fiction at its best; it is no surprise that it has been shortlisted for all the main science fiction awards. (THE TIMES)

Book Description

Reminding us that the universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we CAN imagine, LEARNING THE WORLD is a stunning novel of exploration, discovery and Mankind's destiny amongst the stars.
