Reviews of Pillars of Eternity, the (1982)
Review by ropie (2009-08-23)
One of the best SF writers of the 1970s and 80s, Barrington Bayley, who died in 2008, wrote tales of strange endeavours and mysterious, 'almost scientific' happenings, sometimes on cosmological scale. The Pillars of Eternity is one of his best achievements and combines a series of thought-provoking hypotheses on the nature of reality with a modicum of space opera and action/adventure. A highly successful short novel that packs a lot into very few pages and with a really superb ending.
