With the galaxy-spanning scope of The Recollection, Gareth L. Powell announces himself as a fresh new voice in science-fiction.
In modern-day London, a failed artist falls in love with his sister-in-law. When his brother disappears into a bizarre gateway on a London Underground escalator, the lovers must leave feelings aside to find him. Meanwhile, 400 years in the future, an ancient evil stirs as a woman tries to regain the trust of her family.
With the scale of Iain M. Banks and the intrigue of Alistair Reynolds, Powell’s first book for Solaris brings a stunning breath of fresh air into epic science-fiction – an astounding novel about both personal human relationships and their place in the vastness of time and space.
“Utterly impossible to put down”
-Colin Harvey, author of Winter Song
