As the waters rose in FLOOD, high in the Colorado mountains the US government was building an ark. Not an ark to ride the waves but an ark that would take a select few thousand people out into space to start a new future for mankind. Sent out into deep space on a journey lasting years, generations of crew members carry the hope of a new beginning on a new, incredibly distant, planet. But as time passes knowledge and purpose is lost and division and madness grows. And back on earth life, and man, find a new way. This is the epic sequel to the acclaimed FLOOD; a stirring tale of what mankind will do to survive and the perfect introduction for new readers to one of SF's greatest tropes; the generation ship. Written by one of the most significant SF writers of the last 30 years, a man considered to be the heir of Arthur C. Clarke as a writer with a unique ability to popularize science and science fiction for the largest possible audience FLOOD and ARK together form a landmark in modern SF.

About the Author

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.
