Origin Summary


Origin (The Manifold Trilogy, Book 3) by Stephen Baxter

Concluding the epic Manifold series that began with TIME and continued with SPACE: the adventures of the maverick astronaut Reid Malenfant bring him at last to the beginning of everything.

NASA astronaut Reid Malenfant is flying a military jet over Africa when a vast electric-blue circle appears in the air - and the Red Moon dramatically replaces our ancient, cherished moon. Malenfant's plane is destroyed as he chases the alien circle of light.

Though Malenfant survives, his wife Emma is swept up and hurled towards the Red Moon. Through the months of floods and earthquakes that follow Malenfant singlemindedly lobbies for a moonshot to rescue her.

He's heading for the Red Moon where time and space converge, the origin of the manifold.

Origin Reviews

THE TIMES

`The best SF writer in Britain'

Praise for The Manifold Trilogy:

`Pacy, visionary, extravagantly imagined, TIME places Baxter firmly in the tradition of Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov'
THE TIMES

`Highly intelligent, with original ideas in almost every sentence'
THE GUARDIAN

`Baxter is taking basic SF ideas and rebuilding them based on current science, technology and politics ... [He] apparently has the ambition and the energy to reinvigorate hard SF all by himself'
LOCUS

`It's time for Baxter to take his place alongside Asimov and Heinlein'
