Resplendent : Destiny's Children Book Four Paperback
Part of the Gollancz S.F. series
RESPLENDENT is a collection of stories that encompasses mankind's epic fight for survival against the Xeelee, a narrative of how man will change and evolve over our epic journey out into the universe.
These tales will encompass the rise of sub-molecular empires in the first nanoseconds after the Big Bang to mankind's final transformation.
Full of cutting-edge science, descriptions of time and space on a mind-boggling scale and memorable, all-too-human characters.
It is both the capstone to one of the most significant series in the history of SF and a remarkable achievement in its own right.
This is a mature and uniquely talented writer at the height of his powers.

Great collection of short stories from Baxters epic universe. Very enjoyable.
Review by TimCTaylor
My favourite book! A collection of short fiction that explores the width and depth of the author's Xeelee Sequence. As individual stories (considered independently of the Xeelee context), some are good, some excellent, and some merely okay. What makes me re-read this book is the breathtaking scale of Baxter's vision. I have been reading science fiction for several decades now. Of the hundreds of books and magazines I must have read, none conveys as much sense of wonder as Resplendent.For maximum effect, I recommend reading some of the novels from the Xeelee Sequence and/or Destiny's Children series first.
