In the far future, a young man stands on a barren asteroid. His ship has been stolen, his family kidnapped or worse, and all he has on his side is a semi-intelligent spacesuit. The only member of the crew to escape, Hari has barely been off his ship before. It was his birthplace, his home and his future. He's going to get it back. McAuley's latest novel is set in the same far-flung future as his last few novels, but this time he takes on a much more personal story. This is a tale of revenge, of murder and morality, of growing up and discovering the world around you. Throughout the novel we follow Hari's viewpoint, and as he unravels the mysteries that led to his stranding, we discover them alongside him. But throughout his journeys, Hari must always bear one thing in mind. Nobody is to be trusted.

Paul McAuley won the PHILIP K. DICK AWARD for his first novel and has gone on to win the ARTHUR C. CLARKE, BRITISH FANTASY, SIDEWISE and JOHN W. CAMPBELL AWARDs. He gave up his position as a research biologist to write full time. He lives in London. You can find his blog at: http://www.unlikelyworlds.blogspot.comReview:
The Quiet War was one of the best books McAuley has written, and Evening's Empires makes an excellent companion to it. These are books that, if there is any justice, will shape the stories we tell about our solar system for many years to come. -- Paul Kincaid Interzone
