Reviews

This impressive collection is a fine introduction to Baxter's fascinating, complex world SFX If you're in search of some gripping science fiction utilising big concepts and backed by brilliant writing, look no further than Endurance. 10/10 Starburst Magazine I love to dive into the future and Stephen Baxter is an author that really delivers for me as a reader. Here within this book the reader is treated to a whole host of short stories that add flavour and background to enrich Stephen's Universe. As with his other books, its well written, delivers some great characters and of course a whole host of tales from different parts of his timeline in order to get a fuller picture. Falcata Times a...terrific compilation of stories, best read as a companion to the novels, but strong enough to stand on its own. Daily Mail
