Alastair Reynolds

Alastair Reynolds is a leading light of science fiction's New Space Opera. His novels revitalize the traditional space adventure, giving it a contemporary edge and a sense of gritty realism.

"Although science is vitally important to me, I’m not a nuts-and-bolts writer in the sense that I agonise over all the calculations and technical details. I’m not interested in reading that kind of SF, and definitely not interested in writing it. I see myself more as a writer interested in the concerns of 'core science fiction' — space travel, the medium-term future, artificial intelligence, alien life, that kind of thing."
