Praise for IF THE STARS ARE GODS
“The kind of read that gets a tentacular grip on your mind.” The Times of London
“Excellent . . . finely written and handles the notion of alien life forms on various scales with imagination and something close to old-fashioned awe.” The Spectator
Incorporating the Nebula Award winning story of the same name, If the Stars Are Gods tells the epic tale of Bradley Reynolds, the legendary Man Who Knew the Stars, and his lifelong quest to discover the secrets of alien intelligence. From the time-scoured deserts of Mars to the raging cloud storms of Jupiter, from the radio winds of Titan to the true center of the universe where Beings are collected like songs, Gregory Benford and Gordon Eklund spin a major work of speculative science fiction in the tradition of Childhood’s End and 2001: A Space Odyssey, a story as timeless as the stars themselves.
