Cosmonaut Keep

Cosmonaut Keep

‘”Cosmonaut Keep” is a portal to a deeply imagined future history that parlays X-Files paranoia about Area 51 and alien Greys into a vast interstellar community watched over by microcosmic gods.’ – Paul McAuley, INTERZONE

‘Science fiction’s freshest new writer’ – Salon

After the Ural Caspian Oil War, nobody really trusted the EU government. So why should their extraordinary announcement of first contact with alien intelligence be believed?

Matt Cairns thinks he can discover the truth. It is out there, but much, much further away than he could have imagined. Thousands of light-years from Earth, a human colony is struggling for survival. The world on which they have settled, however, has already been inhabited by humans – and other intelligent species from Earth – for millennia. In that ancient division of labour, humans do have a place. But where is it?

Twenty-first-century political intrigue becomes space opera on an epic scale in Ken MacLeod’s first book in a dazzling new series. His most ambitious novel to date, it will take one of Britain’s most exciting new science fiction authors to even greater heights of success and critical acclaim.
