Return to the eon-spanning and universe-crossing conflict between humanity and the unknowable alien Xeelee in this selection of uncollected and unpublished stories, newly edited and placed in chronological reading order.
From tales charting the earliest days of man’s adventure to the stars to stories of old earth, four billion years in the future, the range and startling imagination of Baxter is always on display as humanity rises and falls, ebbs and flows, one thing is always needed—the ability to endure.
Contains eleven short stories and novellas and features the Interzone story ‘Raft’ which became the seed for the novel. It’s never been anthologised but has appeared on a couple of websites and it’s super-relevant as the collection even contains a sequel to RAFT.
