3 Reynolds, Alastair Pushing Ice
Gollancz 2005 0575074388 / 9780575074385 Hardcover Good/Good 
First contact with extraordinary aliens, glittering technologies that could destroy the universe in a nanosecond, huge sweeping space operas: Alastair Reynolds is back! Some centuries from now, the exploration and exploitation of the Solar Syst em is in full swing. On the cold edge of the system, Bella Lind, captain of the huge commercial spacecraft Rockhopper IV, helps fuel this new gold rus h by attaching mass-driver motors to organic-rich water-ice comets to move them back to the inner worlds. Her crew are tough, blue-collar miners, engi neers and demolition experts. Around Saturn, something inexplicable happens: one of the moons leaves its orbit and accelerates out of the Solar System. The icy mantle peels away to reveal that it was never a moon in the first place, just a parked spacecra ft, millions of years old, that has now decided to move on. Rockhopper IV, trapped in the pull, is hurled across time and space into th e deep, distant future, arriving in a vast, alien-constructed chamber. And the crew are not alone, for each chamber contains an alien culture dragged into this cosmic menagerie at the end of time. The crew of the Rockhopper IV know a lot about blowing up comets, but not much about first contact with ultra-advanced aliens. They have two things to worry about: can they (and their new alien allies) negotiate their way through each harrying contact? And can they assimilate the avalanche of knowledge about their own future - including all the glittering, dangerous technologies that are now theirs for the taking - without destroying themselves in the process?

4 Reynolds, Alastair Redemption Ark
Ace 2004 044101173X / 9780441011735 Paperback Very Good 
With this complex, thoughtful sequel to his highly praised Revelation Space (2001), British author Reynolds confirms his place among the leaders of th e hard-science space-opera renaissance. Spreading from star to star, humani ty has split into different, competing factions. Late in the 26th century, the group-mind Conjoiners are defeating their main rivals, the Demarchists. Unfortunately, the Conjoiners' space exploration has attracted the notice of an ancient swarm of machines that calls itself the Inhibitors and that e xists to destroy all biological intelligence. The Conjoiners don't believe they can fight this new foe, so they intend to run away and let the Inhibit ors wipe out the other human tribes. One Conjoiner warrior, the centuries-o ld Clavain, rebels against this heartless tactic, but he must negotiate wit h a fragmented, distrustful mob of possible allies while pursued by his for mer cohorts. The novel forces readers to process an outrageous amount of in formation-but that's only fair, since the characters are challenged to do t he same. As they extend themselves outward, they also have a chance to gain more understanding of themselves as human beings and more ability to inter act meaningfully. It's rare to find a writer with sufficient nerve and stam ina to write novels that are big enough to justify using words like "revela tion" and "redemption." Reynolds pulls it off.
