Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gripping new novel of the far future by Greg Benford, the multiple award-winning author of The Martian Race, Timescape, and Eater. Beyond infinity takes a scientist's imagination to the uttermost ends of time. Set more than a billion years into the future, the novel involves the idea of a Library of Life, which preserves earlier life forms. The protagonist is human, a re-creation of a long-ago form, who feels uneasy in the rigid, timeless Earth that is the setting for Beyond infinity. And so she flees, in the company of an intelligent beast wise beyond recognition. But there are mysterious forces afoot among the planets. The story involves parallel universes that may lie only a millimeter away from us, but are invisible to any device we have. Alien agencies that can span this dimensional gap will confront our travelers, and a struggle beyond imagining will ensue.

Synopsis:

Takes a scientist's imagination to the uttermost ends of time. Set more than a billion years from now, the novel begins with a young woman who yearns to escape the rigid, timeless Earth she knows. So she flees, in the company of an intelligent beast wise beyond recognition. But there are mysterious forces afoot among the planets that she never foresaw. Alien agencies have learned to span parallel universes, ones that lie only a millimeter away but are invisible to any device known to man. Soon these beings confront the travelers and a struggle beyond imagining begins.
