Editorial Reviews

Review

Tau Zero has been hailed as the quintessential hard SF novel, and it's a well-deserved accolade...an exceptional story, grounded in proper science, and brimming with mind-boggling ideas, hard science, and a scale rarely matched.

-- "Worlds without End"

The ultimate hard science fiction novel.

-- "James Blish, Hugo Award-winning author" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

About the Author

Poul Anderson (1926-2001) was one of the most prolific and popular writers in science fiction. He won the Hugo Award seven times and the Nebula Award three times, as well as many other awards, including the Grand Master Award of the Science Fiction Writers of America for a lifetime of distinguished achievement. With a degree in physics and a wide knowledge of other fields of science, he was noted for building stories on a solid foundation of real science, as well as for being one of the most skilled creators of fast-paced adventure stories. He was author of over one hundred novels and story collections, several hundred short stories, and several mysteries and nonfiction books.



Neil Hellegers grew up in New Jersey and attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned a BA in theater arts and a minor in psychology before getting an MFA in acting from the Trinity Rep Conservatory in Providence, Rhode Island. He moved to New York City in 2003 and, since then, has made a career of theatrical performance, percussion, theater education, and audiobook narration. He currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and son.
