The fourth novel in Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s internationally bestselling Long Earth series

2045–2059. Human society continues to evolve on Datum Earth, its battered and weary origin planet, as the spread of humanity progresses throughout the many Earths beyond.

Lobsang, now an elderly and complex AI, suffers a breakdown and, disguised as a human, attempts to live a “normal” life on one of the millions of Long Earth worlds. His old friend Joshua, now in his fifties, searches for his father and discovers a heretofore unknown family history. And the super-intelligent post-humans known as “the Next” continue to adapt to life among “lesser” humans.

But an alarming new challenge looms. An alien planet has somehow become “entangled” with one of the Long Earth worlds, and, as Lobsang and Joshua learn, its voracious denizens intend to capture, conquer, and colonize the new universe—the Long Earth—they have inadvertently discovered.

World-building, the intersection of universes, the coexistence of diverse species, and the cosmic meaning of the Long Earth itself are among the mind-expanding themes explored in this exciting new installment of Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s extraordinary Long Earth series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The fourth installment of Baxter and the late Pratchett’s ambitious Long Earth saga makes it clear that their imagination and world-building know no limits…Despite the epic scope and attention to scientific detail, the authors never lose sight of the human touch—even if that human is an AI.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The co-authors have created a tighter, more focused narrative that moves faster than its predecessors…[with an] explosive cliff-hanger ending—also now something of a trademark.”


  • “Michael Fenton Stevens gives a spirited narration of the fourth title in the Long Earth series…Stevens has an opportunity to present the many major characters of the ‘homo-superior’ race, along with a few aliens and terrorists as well. In addition to his seemingly never-ending store of accents, he relies on tone to give dimension and attitude to the characters. Stevens’ well-paced narration stays fresh throughout exposition and dialogue.”
