Description
A "brilliant . . . classic of the field" generation ship adventure from the Golden Age of Science Fiction by the author of the Helliconia Trilogy (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). Non-Stop is Grand Master of Science Fiction and Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Brian W. Aldiss's debut novel. Written in response to Robert Heinlein's Orphans of the Sky and published in the late 1950s, it is set in a primitive world, home to tribes of inhabitants who endure their harsh and stunted lives in a maze of corridors. Though legends exist that they're actually on a ship traveling through the universe, no one really believes it. But that conviction doesn't stop a group of people from embarking on a mission to find the rumored "Forwards" section and its control room. Through a tangled, hydroponic jungle, they'll encounter telepathic animals, giants, outcasts, and mutants in an epic race to uncover the truth-and survive . . . "A breakneck ride filled with some truly disturbing and chaotic imagery . . . Aldiss' world is visceral and powerful." -Science Fiction and Other Suspect Ruminations "Worth reading, and quite a significant contribution to the long SF history of generation ship novels." -SF Site Praise for Brian W. Aldiss "A major figure in world SF . . . Whatever else Aldiss may be, predictable he is not." -The Guardian "One of the most influential-and one of the best-SF writers Britain has ever produced." -Iain M. Banks, award-winning author of the Culture series "One of the most important SF writers of the 20th century." -Publishers Weekly
