Praise for Poseidon’s Wake

“Reynolds’ scientific education is on full display, as the novel permeates a sense of realism throughout, from the scientific ideas—even the most far-flung ones—to the nature of the characters and their relationships, which eschew the normal ‘dark,’ Hollywood-like trend of action heroes in literature, with a sense of optimism and discovery…It’s grand, involving and full of light and wonder. Poseidon’s Wake is one of the best sci-fi novels of the year.”—SciFi Now
“Reynolds blends AIs, mysterious aliens, intelligent elephants and philosophical ruminations on our place in the universe in a well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF.”—The Guardian (UK)
“If you are a fan of widescreen, hard SF, such as Iain Banks’ Culture stories or Charles Stross’ space opera novels, but have not yet tried Alastair Reynolds, then you genuinely are in for a real treat. This is the definition of early 21st century, cutting-edge space opera!”—Concatenation
“Concluding in a tense rescue mission reminiscent of writers like Arthur C. Clarke, Poseidon’s Wake is a novel unafraid to ask big questions about human nature and, for that matter, about the ‘truth of life’s fate in the cosmos.’”—Irish Examiner

“In the classic speculative fiction tradition, [Reynolds] grounds his vision of the future in timeless discussions about the meaning of existence.”—Publishers Weekly
