Stephen Baxter recommends
thumb
Alien Clay (2024)
Adrian Tchaikovsky
"Alien Clay is convincing, compelling on human and cosmic levels, and unputdownable. With work like this, Adrian Tchaikovsky is fast becoming the voice of his generation in British SF."
thumb
Loophole (2023)
Ian Stewart
"When universes collide... A multicosmos at war in a scenario of staggering, but scientifically authentic, invention... As if the Marvel multiverse collided with 2001: A Space Odyssey... I am awed, and I don't awe easily. The highest of high-concept SF."
thumb
Under Fortunate Stars (2022)
Ren Hutchings
"If the Guardians of the Galaxy crashed the Foundation... A twisty, enthralling space-time opera. Fortunate readers, and a future star."
