Arthur C. Clarke Award Best Book (nominee)
Coalescent is the first of a trilogy of novels that does nothing less than tell the story of mankind's role in the Universe from the perspective of our impossibly distant descendents - a race who have established a utopia at the end of time and the universe but who must now try and tackle of the shadow that the suffering of the past throws over their perfection. Three radically different novels (earth subsumed by the evolutionary step of the hive culture in man; a far future earth empire battling for survival against impossibly superior alien life; and a look at the moral conflict existing within a utopia millions of years in the future) will be linked by Baxter's uniquely far reaching SF ideas and a future that allows for the manipulation of the past. Or at least of a past.
