About this title

Synopsis:

The Ship has traveled the universe for longer than any of thenear-immortal crew can recall, its true purpose and origins unknown. It is larger than many planets, housing thousands of alien races and just as many secrets.Now one of those secrets has been discovered: at the center of the Ship is . . . a planet. Marrow. But when a team of the Ship's best and brightest are sent down to investigate, will they return with the origins of the Ship--or will they bring doom to everyone on board?Robert Reed, whose fantastic stories have been filling all the major SF magazines for the past several years, spins a captivating tale of adventure and wonder on an incredible scale in this novel based on his acclaimed novella. AUTHORBIO: ROBERT REED is the author of the New York Times notable book BEYOND THE VEIL OF STARS and more than a half-dozen other SF novels. The first Grand Prize Winner of the Writers of the Future contest, he's written a number of stories that have been finalists for Hugo and Nebula Awards. He lives in Omaha, Nebraska.

Review:

The Ship is a rock larger than worlds. The Ship is a world full of vast hollows in which live thousands of alien races. The Ship is a mysterious starship, billions of years old, crewed by the near-immortal humans who discovered it, empty, at the fringes of the galaxy. And, as a select inner circle of the crew is astonished to discover, there is a planet at the center of the Ship. They descend to the surface of the planet, Marrow, hoping to discover the origin of the Ship--only to find themselves trapped on that hellish world and abandoned by their fellow captains, even as tremendous, inexplicable changes in Marrow may doom the Ship and everyone aboard.

Robert Reed's Marrow is high-concept, epoch-spanning SF in the tradition of Olaf Stapledon's Last and First Men, Camille Flammarion's Omega, and Greg Egan's Diaspora. Unlike Last and First Men and Omega, Marrow features a continuing cast of well-drawn, believable characters in addition to the brain-busting big ideas and sense of wonder. --Cynthia Ward
