Wildly praised by readers and critics alike, Robert Charles Wilson’s Spin won science fiction’s highest honor, the Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Now, in Spin’s direct sequel, Axis, Wilson takes us to the “world next door”—the planet engineered by the mysterious Hypotheticals to support human life, and connected to Earth by way of the Arch that towers hundreds of miles over the Indian Ocean. Humans are colonizing this new world—and, predictably, fiercely exploiting its resources, chiefly large deposits of oil in the western deserts of the continent of Equatoria.

Lise Adams is a young woman attempting to uncover the mystery of her father’s disappearance ten years earlier. Turk Findley is an ex-sailor and sometimes-drifter. They come together when an infall of cometary dust seeds the planet with tiny remnant Hypothetical machines. Soon, this seemingly hospitable world will become very alien indeed—as the nature of time is once again twisted, by entities unknown.

    " supposed to be a sequel to Spin, but it does not follow any of the characters from Spin - just later events in the same universe. So far, not so good... (Tune in for more details once/if I finish it.) "

    " Excellent science fiction--but read Spin first, as this is a sequel to that novel. "

    " well. I have to read the last one now, but this one was not as good as the first. the series is in danger of becoming to abstract for my liking...but i will soldier on. "

    " Axis is the sequel to Spin, which I thought was phenomenal. Axis was good, but it just couldn't compare. I hope Vortex, the third in the series, blows me away like Spin did! "
