Kim Stanley Robinson never disappoints. Aurora delivered in every way. He has the science, he has the anthropology of our species, and he has the imagination that enables a futurist’s best guess as to where humanity might go. There’s a strong message in Aurora that resonates with where we find ourselves today. Highly recommend Aurora and any other of this author’s excellent books. – Amazon Review
A major new novel from one of science fiction’s most powerful voices, Aurora tells the incredible story of our first voyage beyond the solar system.
Brilliantly imagined and beautifully told, it is the work of a writer at the height of his powers.
Our voyage from Earth began generations ago.
Now, we approach our new home.
