Quotes & Awards

  • “[Robinson is] a rare contemporary writer to earn a reputation on par with earlier masters such as Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke.”

    Chicago Tribune on Aurora

  • “If Interstellar left you wanting more, then this novel might just fill that longing.”

    io9 on Aurora

  • “Humanity’s first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in Aurora.”

    SPACE.com on Aurora

  • “[A] heart-warming, provocative tale.”

    Scientific American on Aurora

  • “This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game… [A] poignant story, which admirably stretches the limits of human imagination.”

    Publishers Weekly on Aurora

  • “This is hard SF the way it’s mean to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully realized society. Robinson is an acknowledged sf master-his Mars trilogy and his stand-alone novel 2312 (2012) were multiple award winners and nominees-and this latest novel is sure to be a big hit with devoted fans of old-school science fiction.”

    Booklist on Aurora

  • “Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game.”

    Iain M. Banks on 2312

  • “In his vibrant, often moving new novel, 2312, Robinson’s extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story. […] Perhaps Robinson’s finest novel, 2312 is a treasured gift to fans of passionate storytelling; readers will be with Swan and Wahram in the tunnel long after reaching the last page.”

    LA Times

  • “Inherently epic stuff… expect interplanetary strife, conspiracies, more big ideas than most SF authors pack into a trilogy… [yet] this is ultimately in so many respects a book about Earth… a wise and wondrous novel.”

    SFX on 2312

  • “A monumental tour-de-force…Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets…An amazing accomplishment.”

    Robert Crais, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “A rousing tribute to the human spirit.”

    San Francisco Chronicle on Aurora

  • “The thrilling creation of plausible future technology and the grandness of imagination…magnificent.”

    Sunday Times on Aurora

  • An Amazon Best Book of the Month for March 2017
