Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning Author

Robert J. Sawyer

Author of FlashForward

[Red Deer Press logo]

"For big-time interstellar adventure, look no farther." — Gregory Benford

The only novel of its year to be nominated for both the HUGO and NEBULA awards

From the author of FlashForward, a far-future spaceships-and-aliens hard-sf extravaganza in the tradition of Larry Niven

"The ultimate grand tour!" — Jack McDevitt

"Sawyer's latest should gladden the hearts of readers who complain that nobody's writing real science fiction anymore, the kind of story that has faster-than-light spaceships and far-off planets and interstellar combat. Sawyer deftly juggles half a dozen sweeping questions of cosmology (not to mention everyday ethics and morality) while keeping the story moving ahead full speed. Enjoy." — Asimov's Science Fiction

"An epic hard-science adventure tempered by human concerns. Highly recommended." — Library Journal

"Mind-boggling. A complaint often heard these days is that there's not enough `sense of wonder' in today's science fiction. Robert J. Sawyer's Starplex ought to lay that complaint to rest for quite a while." — Analog Science Fiction and Fact

"Sawyer's on a par with giants like Asimov and Heinlein — and, perhaps more than any other science fiction writer working today, he understands that it's a genre about ideas." — Mystery News

ROBERT J. SAWYER has won the Hugo, Nebula, John W. Campbell Memorial, Seiun, and Aurora Awards, all for best science fiction novel of the year. His novels include Hominids, Rollback, Wake, and FlashForward (basis for the TV series). Website: sfwriter.com.
