John Scalzi, The Collapsing Empire, with Scott Lynch and Elizabeth Bear
The first novel of a new space-opera sequence set in an all-new universe by the Hugo Award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author of Redshirts and Old Man's War.
One of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction authors to emerge in the last decade, John Scalzi returns with the beginning of all new saga: THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE (A Tor Hardcover; On-sale: March 21, 2017). Entertaining, hilarious, and creative both in his books and his online musings, Scalzi continues to cement his well-deserved prominent place in the literary world.
The Flow is eternal—but it is not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well, cutting off worlds from the rest of humanity. When it’s discovered that The Flow is moving, possibly cutting off all human worlds from faster than light travel forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain and the Empress of the Interdependency—are in a race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.
THE COLLAPSING EMPIRE is eagerly awaited by all of Scalzi's fans around the world, and also serves as a great new entry point to anyone looking for an intelligent action-packed science fiction read!
