Century Rain

Author(s): Alastair Reynolds

Science Fiction & Fantasy

A noir thriller set in the Revelation Space universe.

Three hundred years in the future, Verity Auger is a specialist in the archaeological exploration of Earth, rendered uninhabitable after the technological catastrophe known as the Nanocaust. After a field-trip goes badly wrong, Verity is forced to redeem herself by participating in a dangerous mission, for which her expertise is invaluable.
Using a backdoor into an unstable alien transit system, Auger's faction has discovered something astonishing at the far end of a wormhole: mid-twentieth century Earth, preserved like a fly in amber. Is it a window into the past, a simulation, or something else entirely?

Century Rain is not just a time-travel story, nor a tale of alternate history. Part hard SF thriller, part interstellar adventure, part noir rmance, Century Rain is something altogether stranger.
