With eight short stories and novellas—including three
original to this collection—Galactic
North imparts the centuries-spanning events that have produced the dark and
turbulent world of Revelation Space.
Centuries from now, the basic right to expand human
intelligence beyond its natural limits has become a war-worthy cause for the
Demarchists and Conjoiners. Only vast lighthugger starships bind these
squabbling colonies together, manned by the panicky and paranoid Ultras. And
the hyperpigs just try to keep their heads down.
The rich get richer. And everyone tries not to think about
the worrying number of extinct alien civilizations turning up on the outer
reaches of settled space … because who’s to say that humanity won’t be next?
Set in the Revelation
Space universe, this is the first short story collection by the author who
has been called “one of SF’s best and most ambitious novelists.” The eight
stories included in Galactic North
are “Great Wall of Mars,” “Glacial,” “A Spy in Europa,” “Weather,” “Dilation
Sleep,” “Grafenwalder’s Bestiary,” “Nightingale,” and “Galactic North.” Download and start listening now!
