Brian Wilson Aldiss is one of the most important voices in science fiction writing today. He wrote his first novel while working as a bookseller in Oxford. Shortly afterwards he wrote his first work of science fiction and soon gained international recognition. Adored for his innovative literary techniques, evocative plots, and irresistible characters, he became a Grand Master of Science Fiction in 1999. Brian Aldiss recently celebrated his 80th birthday and is still writing, to ardent applause.

    "Fascinating universe creation..."

    I'm still unsure about some of the Gaia-inspired ideas, but very interesting and very well put together. The evolution of a civilization over millennia is very well done. I kept wondering if the narrator's British accent was a nod to the nationality of the author. :)
