SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 9, 1999

"Neither the desultory plot nor the plodding prose generates much narrative tension: imaginative, sometimes, but this unengaging space odyssey's mostly just pointless."

Released: Aug. 15, 1991

"Crude attempts to jumpstart the reader's sense of wonder with repeated insistence that the characters are awed, amazed, and overwhelmed by the rather routine vistas they encounter serve only to underline the lack of the genuine goods here."

FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 1, 1988

"Clarke's ideas often take wing, but here he's just muddling through."
