Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Chasm City
Winner of The British Science Fiction Association’s Award for Best Novel of the Year
One of Locus and Science Fiction Chronicle’s “Best SF Novels of the Year”
 
“Deep, complex and always more than [it] seems. Reynolds succeeds in the hardest task of good science fiction, creating a new world full of wonder.”—The Denver Post
 
“A tightly written story that spirals inevitably inwards toward its powerful conclusion. [Chasm City] confirms Reynolds as the most exciting space opera writer working today.”—Locus
 
“The best thing that Reynolds has ever done...in the end, it’s a joy.”—John Clute, author of Appleseed, coeditor of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction
 
“A worth follow-up to Revelation Space. Reynolds transmutes space opera into a nourish, baroque, picaresque mystery tale. Inventiveness and tone are Reynolds’ strong points...the novel’s details are consistently startling but convincing in context. Reynolds remains one of the hottest new SF writers around.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Successfully combines SF noir with technothriller in a dark vision of the future.”—Library Journal
 
“An impressive book. Another step toward what could become a very significant 21st century hard SF career.”—SF Site
