Book Description
 

NEWTON'S WAKE by Ken MacLeod - FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Ken MacLeod.

From Scottish author Ken MacLeod -- renowned for highly politicized science fiction novels like The Stone Canal, The Cassini Division, and The Sky Road -- comes Newton's Wake, a self-proclaimed space opera about humanity's struggle to survive in the aftermath of a war against artificially intelligent post-humans.

After the events of the Hard Rapture, a catastrophic conflict ignited by the sudden evolution of Earth's artificial intelligences into transcendent post-humans, millions of humans were brutally butchered by the post-humans' war machines. Some space-faring humans returned to Earth to heroically fight the war machines while others escaped to distant stars to try and start over again. Then, the ultimately triumphant post-humans inexplicably disappeared and left the remnants of humanity to their own devices.

Now, centuries later, Lucinda Carlyle -- an untested leader in a family of galactic entrepreneurs (a.k.a. crooks) who have taken control of a chain of invaluable wormholes left behind by the post-humans -- stumbles across a gate that leads to a remote planet (Eurydice) inhabited by a colony of isolated humans living in a "closed cornucopian" society. On the planet's surface is a mountainous post-human relic that could mean a fortune for the Carlyles if its secrets can be accessed. But first they must fight off the Eurydician government, competing politically divergent colonies -- and an army of newly manufactured post-human war machines!

Bitingly ironic, thematically complex, and gutsy enough to tackle current highly volatile political issues head-on, this wild and witty space opera will beguile new readers and provide solid enjoyment for fans of MacLeod's earlier works.
