In Cosmonaut Keep, Ken MacLeod tells the story of humanity's first encounter with an awesome and mysterious alien civilization. Spanning centuries and light years, the novel interweaves two tales of love, intrigue, and courage. One is the story of Matt Cairns, a young outlaw programmer struggling to survive in a politically turbulent near-future Europe. The other tells of his descendant, Gregor Cairns, who has made a home for himself on a distant and exotic alien world many centuries hence.
Cosmonaut Keep is contemporary science fiction at its highest level, an epic of daring and passionate individuals seeking a place for themselves and their dreams in a vast and enigmatic universe.
