"And everywhere the humans went they found life..."

This dazzling future history, the most ambitious and exciting since Asimov's classic Foundation novels, tells the story of Humankind--all the way to the end of the Universe itself.

Here, in luminous and vivid narratives spanning five million years, are the first Poole wormholes spanning the solar system; the conquest of Human planets by Squeem; GUTships that outrace light; the back-time invasion of the Qax; the mystery and legacy of the Xeelee, and their artifacts as large as small galaxies; photino birds and Dark Matter; and the Ring, where Ghost, Human, and Xeelee contemplate the awesome end of Time.

Stephen Baxter is the most acclaimed and accomplished of a brilliant new generation of authors who are expanding the vision of science fiction and taking it to a new golden age.

A collection of short stories which relate to much of his other work. Very cool concepts and ideas are developed in these stories. A good read for any sci-fi fan.
