`The most important living science-fiction writer in the country'
`The best SF writer in Britain'
Praise for The Xeelee Sequence:
`Polishes its ideas with such realistic brilliance you can see a whole civilization in it'
`Fast paced, strong on suspense, efficiently written, and has moral weight, but it is in the creation of a genuinely strange and believable new universe that Baxter excels... rigorous, vigorous SF at its enjoyable best'
`Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein succeeded in doing it, but very few others. Now Stephen Baxter joins their exclusive ranks - writing science fiction in which the science is right, the author knowledgeable, and the extrapolations a sheer pleasure to read, admire, enjoy'
`Almost perfect... RAFT is very, very hard SF and it's great fun'
