The Medusa Chronicles

Alastair Reynolds, Stephen Baxter

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Science fiction

Inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's Nebula Award winning A Meeting with Medusa, this is a epic adventure from two of the greatest science fiction writers of our time.

Inspired by Sir Arthur C. Clarke's short story A Meeting with Medusa, this novel, with permission from the Clarke Estate, continues the story of Commander Howard Falcon over centuries of space-exploration, interaction with AI, first contact and beyond. All brought to life by two of our greatest SF authors, Stephen Baxter and Alastair Reynolds.

Howard Falcon almost lost his life in an accident . . . and a combination of human ingenuity and technical expertise brought him back. Not as himself, but as an augmented human: part man, part machine, and exceptionally capable.

THE MEDUSA CHRONICLES charts his journey through time, the changing interaction between humanity and our universe, and combined moments of incredible action with unparalleled exploration of and expansion into space. A compelling read from the beginning, this is classic SF which has appeal for readers who like Gravity and The Martian.
