Beginning in 2000 while
researching astronomy and astrophysics
for the European Space Agency’s main research establishment in the
Netherlands, Alastair Reynolds published the
first four volumes of the acclaimed REVELATION SPACE series:
REVELATION SPACE , CHASM CITY (winner of the British Science Fiction
Award), REDEMPTION ARK, and ABSOLUTION GAP. Later he added a fifth
title with THE PREFECT. After leaving the Agency in 2004, he became a
full time writer and continued his impressive output of which
included the POSEIDON’S CHILDREN series (BLUE REMEMBERED EARTH, ON
THE STEEL BREEZE, and POSEIDON’S WAKE), PUSHING ICE, TERMINAL WORLD,
HARVEST OF TIME, and SLOW BULLETS.
Reynolds’ numerous short stories have garnered him Seiun and
Sidewise awards. Much of his shorter work have been collected in
DIAMOND DOGS, TURQUOISE DAYS, ZIMA BLUE AND OTHER STORIES, GALACTIC
NORTH, THOUSANDTH NIGHT AND MINLA’S FLOWERS, and DEEP NAVIGATION.
All of us at Tachyon wish the amazing Alastair a happy birthday.
Keep watching the skies!
