Editorial reviews


It is engaging enough on a visceral level, but it is crack not just for sci-fi fans, but for futurists, scientists, geneticists, engineers, and those concerned with how humanity will survive the challenges that lie ahead.

Seveneves is an intriguing trip through some strange and complicated places, but it will suffer from comparison to Stephenson’s previous work. Its not a bad book, we just have published proof that he can do better.

It is ample praise to say that “Seveneves” would be a great way to pass the time while waiting for the end of the world.

Meanwhile, all those exploding planetoids make a good argument for more STEM funding. Wise, witty, utterly well-crafted science fiction.
