Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Iain Banks' latest science fiction title is set in the universe of the Culture. The Excession has reappeared in a remote corner of space, but the one person who might be able to explain its incredible potential is not available. So the Excession waits, but the Culture needs to understand it before they fall into its hands. "Staggering imaginative energy" "Independent". Bank's other sci-fi titles include "Consider Phlebas" and "Feersum Endjinn".

Synopsis:

Two and a half millennia ago, the Excession, a perfect black sphere, appeared in a remote corner of space. It did nothing, then disappeared. Now it is back, and someone who saw it the first time has information on its staggering potential, but she is living out her death in the Sleeper Service.
