Beginning with an in-depth look at what the 21st century might bring in the way of technological advances and an examination of our past efforts to gain the future (the Apollo programme and the Space Shuttle) DEEP FUTURE takes you on a dizzying ride to the limits of time and space and looks at how mankind might overcome the unavoidable limitations of a physical universe and win the deep future.
Only a writer as imaginatively gifted as Stephen Baxter could present a future history of mankind that incorporates space-faring genetically modified squid and the mining of black holes. DEEP FUTURE is a vivid travelogue of both the distant future and the far reaches of a solar system we must colonise and a galaxy we simply must inherit in order to survive.
The logic of a vast universe in which we seem to be alone could be grim but in Baxter¿s hands the deep future is our only possible refuge. Even the chapter which charts how nature will leave us behind if we fail is a beautifully atmospheric cautionary tale.About the Author:
Stephen Baxter has become one of the SF genre¿s key figures. Novels such as The Time Ships and Voyage have won awards and been published everywhere from Japan, to Holland, to Finland and the US.
