More from beloved cult authors….This is the second installment in the incomparable Mr. Pratchett’s collaboration with Stephen Baxter. Their first book, The Long Earth , was Good Reads’ Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year and earned praise like this:
“The Long Earth harkens back to the old SF of the Fifties and Sixties, which revelled in the delight of discovering new worlds. But Pratchett and Baxter have essentially democatised space exploration, taking the joy of finding new Edens out of the hands of rocket-owning millionaires and governments and giving it to the masses. This is an accessible, fun and thoughtful SF novel that offers the potential for a multitude of stories as great as the myriad of Earths.”
“[A] marriage made in fan heaven – Pratchett’s warmth and humanity allied to Baxter’s extraordinarily fertile science-fictional imagination…it’s a charming, absorbing and somehow spacious piece of Imagineering.”
“Stay tuned for the next episode of a very old-fashioned sf quest yarn (think Jules Verne and 2001) that, since Pratchett is involved, is crammed with scientifically informed amusement.”
“The Long Earth is a brilliant Science Fiction collaboration with Stephen Baxter: a love letter to all Pratchett fans, readers, and lovers of wonder everywhere… This novel is a gift to be shared with anyone who loves to be amazed.”
