ALASTAIR REYNOLDS AND STEPHEN BAXTER The Medusa Chronicles
Two of the greatest science fiction writers of our time create a sequel to an award-winning Arthur C. Clarke short story. Following an accident that almost cost him his life, Howard Falcon was not so much saved as he was converted, through the use of prosthetics, into something faster, stronger and smarter. And with this change came an opportunity. That of piloting a mission into Jupiter’s atmosphere, and ultimately of making first contact with the Jovian life-forms. Picking up the threads of humanity versus artificial intelligences and machines, and of encounters with the alien, this collaborative novel between two superb writers is a sequel to Arthur C. Clarke’s novella A Meeting with Medusa. This is a modern science fiction adventure. Alastair Reynolds is the award-winning author of the Revelation Space universe novels. Stephen Baxter is the award-winning author of Flood and Ark, who has worked in collaboration with Arthur C. Clarke and Terry Pratchett.
