This impressive collection is a fine introduction to Baxter's fascinating, complex world
a...terrific compilation of stories, best read as a companion to the novels, but strong enough to stand on its own.
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.
A sense of grandeur few other SF novelists can even hope to match.
Sense-of-wonder is clearly Baxter's middle name.
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
