This impressive collection is a fine introduction to Baxter's fascinating, complex world

An incredible collection from a modern age successor to H.G. Wells.

If you're in search of some gripping science fiction utilising big concepts and backed by brilliant writing, look no further than Endurance. 10/10
Starburst Magazine
Favourite bedside reading and beyond.
FORBIDDENPLANET.CO.UK
Surreal, funny and, at moments, genuinely creepy.

I love to dive into the future and Stephen Baxter is an author that really delivers for me as a reader. Here within this book the reader is treated to a whole host of short stories that add flavour and background to enrich Stephen's Universe. As with his other books, its well written, delivers some great characters and of course a whole host of tales from different parts of his timeline in order to get a fuller picture.
Falcata Times
a...terrific compilation of stories, best read as a companion to the novels, but strong enough to stand on its own.
