This is science fiction on the grandest of scales - a cast of thousands set across hundreds of years and in the farthest reaches of Human Space. A prequel to his earlier novel A Fire Upon the Deep, this new novel is epic in scope and a thoroughly riveting read.
A Deepness In the Sky is the story of Pham Nuwen, a small cog in the interstellar trading fleet of the Queng Ho. Both they and the Emergents are orbiting Arachna, a dormant planet which will shortly wake up when its On/Off star relights after decades of darkness. Both groups hope to exploit the coming age of technology and commerce on Arachna. But while the Queng Ho seek only to trade aggressively, the Emergents plans are far more sinister, amounting to little short of genocide . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
A feast of imagination. As always, Vinge satisfies with richly imagined worlds and a full-flavored story

Revelatory space opera, galaxy spanning story . . . the book's immensity puts Vinge in the Golden New Age of Arthur C Clarke and Greg Bear - The Times

The sort of epic take on a first-contact scenario that you would expect from a writer of Vernor Vinge's quality

Vernor Vinge's latest novel is a triumph, continuing the most visionary, intelligent deep-space adventure of our time. Reason to cheer, indeed - and a great, long read it is

Vinge has done it again. A Deepness in the Sky is vivid, suspenseful, realistic. Vinge's villains are chillingly believable, and so is his vision of a hopeful tomorrow

“Wonderful”

I got completely wonderfully lost in this story.
One of the most sustained fights of imagination I have read.
His other book 'A Fire Upon the Deep' is equally good.
I don't know how I missed Vernor... More
