|Series:||Gateway Essentials Ser.|
Sequel to the classic space opera EON - a groundbreaking SF classic. Here, from the other side of time, come: THISTLEDOWN, the asteroid starship of a future that is not quite our future; GAIA, a parallel reality where Alexander the Great's empire has ruled for two thousand years; and THE WAY, an infinite corridor through space-time which traverses and encompasses whole universes. And as the strands of these mysteries are unravelled, so the ordering and the end of mankind - and our entire Universe - come into question.
Greg Bear is one of the greats of SF. His classic novel EON (part of the SF Masterworks list) was part of the boom in high concept, grand scale SF from the USA that revitalised the genre in the 1980s. His novel BLOOD MUSIC is an uniquely uplifting apocalyptic novel about evolution overtaking mankind. He has won both the HUGO and NEBULA AWARDS. He lives in the USA.
