Editorial Reviews

"It's a gymnasium for the imagination" -EVENING STANDARD

"A mordant wit, a certain savagery and a wild imagination" -MAIL ON SUNDAY

"Spectacular ... the field needs his energy, skill and invention" -THE SCOTSMAN

"Banks' mind-expanding future history is unrivalled for imaginative sweep, startling ideas, and savage but wry sense of humour. One of the very best just got even better" -STARBURST
