Named one of the best novels of the year by both Locus and Science Fiction Chronicle, Alastair Reynolds's debut Revelation Space redefined the space opera. With Chasm City, Reynolds invites you to reenter the bizarre universe of his imagination as he redefines Hell... The once-utopian Chasm City-a domed human settlement on an otherwise inhospitable planet-has been overrun by a virus known as the Melding Plague, capable of infecting any body, organic or computerized. Now, with the entire city corrupted-from the people to the very buildings they inhabit-only the most wretched sort of existence remains. For security operative Tanner Mirabel, it is the landscape of nightmares through which he searches for a lowlife postmortal killer. But the stakes are raised when his search brings him face to face with a centuries-old atrocity that history would rather forget. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dirkfabian | 2/10/2014

    " The first chapter had me convinced that some hollywood hack writer had stolen Reynolds' name. Luckily the remainder of the book quickly returned to his descriptive, intelligent, and idea-packed writing. A really good story that fills in some interesting gaps in the Revelation Space world. One of his best efforts. "

    " Exposition galore, filling in a lot of Chasm City and Yellowstone history gaps, but the overall narrative was a little twisted for my taste, and I enjoy time-skipping. "

    " Nice complex book. My only complaint is that they start strong, and then kind of twiddle through the middle. Then end strong. "
