Synopses & Reviews
Multiple Nebula and Hugo Award-winner Greg Bear returns to the Earth of his acclaimed novel Eon
--a world devastated by nuclear war. The crew of the asteroid-starship Thistledown
has thwarted an attack by the Jarts by severing their link to the Way, an endless corridor that spans universes. The asteroid settled into orbit around Earth and the tunnel snaked away, forming a contained universe of its own.
Forty years later, on Gaia, Rhita Vaskayza recklessly pursues her legacy, seeking an Earth once again threatened by forces from within and without. For physicist Konrad Korzenowski, murdered for creating The Way, and resurrected, is compelled by a faction determined to see it opened once more. And humankind will discover just how entirely they have underestimated their ancient adversaries.
"A powerful, imaginative novel." --Library Journal
"Bear pictures Axis City, and everything else for that matter, with astonishing clarity....Bear's grasp is unfaltering, his control over the ramifying implications of his tale nearly perfect....Eon may be the best constructed hard sf epic yet." --Washington Post Book World on Eon
"The only word for it really is blockbuster....it is big and breathtaking; the story and the concepts are ambitious to the point of mind boggling." --Isaac Asimov's SF Magazine on Eon
