Beyond the Hallowed Sky : Book One of the Lightspeed Trilogy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'An exceptional blend of international politics, hard science, and first contact' Michael Mammay, author of the Planetside seriesWhen a brilliant scientist gets a letter from herself about faster-than-light travel, she doesn't know what to believe.

The equations work, but her paper is discredited - and soon the criticism is more than scientific.

Exiled by the establishment, she gets an offer to build her starship from an unlikely source.

But in the heights of Venus and on a planet of another star, a secret is already being uncovered that will shake humanity to its foundations. Science fiction legend Ken MacLeod begins a new space opera trilogy by imagining humankind on the precipice of discovery - the invention of faster-than-light travel unlocks a universe of new possibilities, and new dangers.
