Summary :

THE LONG TOMORROW

As we stand on the brink of another momentous thousand years of human history, our curiosity about the future grows boundless. So it is just as well that there is at least one creator of fictional long tomorrows - A. A. Attanasio - whose visionary imagination is equal to the task of depicting the Third Millennium in its manifold wonder and terror.

With unequalled skill and insight, Attanasio shows us a time to come in which scientific and technological advance utterly transforms the very fabric of life on - and off - Earth. And in which the most basic notions of what it means to be human are challenged dramatically and for ever. As a drastically changed humanity grapples with strange new forms of consciousness and alarmingly alien priorities, dangerously different kinds of conflict emerge - and with them the threat of apocalyptic extinction not just for our home planet but for the entire universe...

CENTURIES is a triumph of the transcendent imagination, a true epic of far-seeing vision by one of the world's greatest modern authors of thought-provoking fiction.
