[b][i]Elysium Fire[/i] is a smoldering tale of murderers, secret cultists, tampered memories, and unthinkable power, of bottomless corruption and overpowering idealism from the king of modern space opera. [/b] Ten thousand city-state habitats orbit the planet Yellowstone, forming a near-perfect democratic human paradise. But even utopia needs a police force. For the citizens of the Glitter Band that organization is Panoply, and the prefects are its operatives. Prefect Tom Dreyfus has a new emergency on his hands. Across the habitats and their hundred million citizens, people are dying suddenly and randomly, victims of a bizarre and unprecedented malfunction of their neural implants. And these "melters" leave no clues behind as to the cause of their deaths... As panic rises in the populace, a charismatic figure is sowing insurrection, convincing a small but growing number of habitats to break away from the Glitter Band and form their own independent colonies.

Alastair Reynolds ( Alastair Preston Reynolds , b. 1966) was born in Barry, South Wales, raised in Cornwall. Education (physics and astronomy) received in Newcastle, a scientific degree - in Scotland. For a long time he lived in Holland, worked for the European Space Agency. In 2004 he left his job and focused on a career as a writer. He returned to Wales in 2008 and now lives near Cardiff. Reynolds belongs to a galaxy of British science fiction writers who made their mark in the 1990s, and he is more inclined towards solid science fiction than others. The writer`s short prose was published mainly in "Interzone" and "Spectrum SF" - a Scottish science fiction magazine. The author actively publishes comments on his stories on the Internet. Reynolds` first novel, Revelation Space, was released in 2000, followed by Chasm City (2001), Redemption Ark (2002), Absolution The Gap (2003), Century Rain (2004), Pushing Ice (2005), The Prefect (2007), House of Suns (2008). The term "hard science fiction" does not suit the writer too much, but since it has caught on, then, according to Reynolds, it remains to be reconciled. The main criterion of the genre, he considers not the requirements for the education of the reader, but the reliability and realism of what is described. Writer`s Official Website: http://www.alastairreynolds.com/ Wikipedia Page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alastair_Reynolds ------------------ -------------------------------------------
