Product description

Review

In terms of sheer storytelling prowess and verve, LOOK TO WINDWARD is a work of genius (SFX)

A great book (NEW SCIENTIST)

Banks keeps ratcheting up the suspense (GUARDIAN)

A mordant wit, a certain savagery and a wild imagination (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Synopsis

It was one of the less glorious incidents of a long-ago war. It led to the destruction of two suns and the billions of lives they supported. Now, eight hundred years later, the light from the first of those ancient mistakes has reached the Culture Orbital, Masaq'. The light from the second may not. 'Confirms Banks as the standard by which the rest of SF is judged' GUARDIAN 'In terms of sheer storytelling prowess and verve, Look to Windward is a work of genius' SFX 'A great book' NEW SCIENTIST
