"'Voyage'...[is an] excellent [work] that shows the path sf must take if it is to remain vital. Sf publishers have two choices. They can continue to insist that their authors either write medias tie-ins, power fantasies for teenagers, or slavishly mimic the successful works of the past....Or publishers can find writers who do what...Baxter [is] doing--produc[ing] contemporary works that conserve traditions without descending into pastiche or parody. If publishers stay the course, there is a possibility that, after the current time of troubles, science fiction will be better than before--confident, heroic, optimistic work that is excellent literature based on accurate science."Baxter, Stephen is the author of 'Voyage', published 1997 under ISBN 9780061057083 and ISBN 0061057088.
