Kim Stanley Robinson is a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. He is the author of more than twenty books, including the bestselling Mars trilogy and the critically acclaimed Forty Signs of Rain, The Years of Rice and Salt and 2312. In 2008, he was named a "Hero of the Environment" by Time magazine, and he works with the Sierra Nevada Research Institute. He lives in Davis, California.
  • "Intellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game." (Iain M. Banks on 2312).

  • "2312 is a monumental tour-de-force that re-imagines the solar system in ways no one has envisioned before.  Whether comparing the compositions of Beethoven to those of skylarks and warblers, or describing a life-threatening sunrise on Mercury, Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets.  This is the finest novel yet from the author who gave us the Mars Trilogy and GALILEO'S DREAM.  An amazing accomplishment." (Robert Crais).

  • "Robinson's extraordinary completeness of vision results in a magnificently realized, meticulously detailed future in which social and biological changes keep pace with technological developments." (Publishers Weekly on 2312).

  • " In his vibrant, often moving new novel, "2312," Robinson's extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story. [...] Perhaps Robinson's finest novel, "2312" is a treasured gift to fans of passionate storytelling; readers will be with Swan and Wahram in the tunnel long after reaching the last page." (LA Times).

  • "Robinson's expert world building and lyrical prose offer Jack London-esque pleasures as they depict the stark beauties of the icy landscape - it's desolation, dangers and the desperate choices it forces people to make when pushed to the edge of existence. Richly detailed."  (Kirkus on Shaman).

  • "This novel bears the markings of Robinson's consummate skill with a sort of anthropological fiction...Spectacular world building." (Booklist on Shaman).

  • "A thrilling journey through an age of ice and stone - one of Kim Stanley Robinson's best!" (Greg Bear on Shaman).

  • "This book proves once again that Robinson's fascination with the human condition and mankind's journey transcends easy genre labels...Despite all his previous accolades, this may be Robinson's best work to date, focused so sharply as it is on the simplest way of being human." (Library Journal on Shaman).

  • "A seriously composed and compelling novel about prehistoric life...some of the most intelligent entertainment you can find." (NPR Books on Shaman ).

  • "The novel is an amazing piece of recreation, vividly evoking the deprivations, animalistic beliefs and day-to-day struggles of a primitive tribe." (Financial Times (UK) on Shaman).
