Editorial Reviews

Review

"Proper galaxy-spanning Space Opera ... a worthy addition to the genre."―Iain M. Banks on Seeds of Earth

"The invention is endless."―SFX on Seeds of Earth

"A well-constructed space opera...a thick and satisfying 10-course meal of starchy pageantry, meaty characters, bitter losses, and sweet romance."―Publishers Weekly on Seeds of Earth

"Seeds of Earth has everything: well-realised extraterrestrials, scheming artificial intelligences, set-piece space battles and bizarre technology from the dawn of the galaxy."―The Guardian (UK) on Seeds of Earth

"Space opera has never been in more capable hands."―The Guardian (UK) on The Orphaned Worlds

"Michael Cobley has added a fine piece of work to a grand tradition."―SF Crow's Nest on The Ascendant Stars --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
