In FLOOD Baxter drowned the world, in ARK he shows that mankind's future is no less perilous.
Stephen Baxter is the pre-eminent SF writer of his generation. Published around the world he has also won major awards in the UK, US, Germany, and Japan. Born in 1957 he has degrees from Cambridge and Southampton. He lives in Northumberland with his wife.
By 2041, rising ocean levels have nearly covered the land surfaces of Earth and will soon overwhelm what little dry ground remains. Two spaceships, Ark One and Ark Three, prepare for a one-way trip to a habitable planet in a distant part of space. Among the potential colonists is Holly Groundwater, who learns the difficulties inherent in winning out over the competition and placing her life above others to gain a place in the transport. Verdict Continuing the apocalyptic vision of Flood, Baxter demonstrates an uncanny talent for delving into the psychological world of the survivor. His gift for storytelling and his large-scale, panoramic scenario should appeal to fans of such apocalyptic fiction as Walter Jon Williams's The Rift and John Barnes's Mother of Storms.
