Red Moon

‘A masterpiece’ – Times

‘Any new novel by the great Kim Stanley Robinson is always an event and Red Moon doesn’t disappoint’ – Independent

‘Sci-fi fans will love the detail and the optimism about humanity’s future in space’ – Wall Street Journal


IT IS THIRTY YEARS FROM NOW, AND WE HAVE COLONISED THE MOON.

American Fred Fredericks is making his first trip, his purpose to install a communications system for China’s Lunar Science Foundation. But hours after his arrival he witnesses a murder and is forced into hiding.

It is also the first visit for celebrity travel reporter Ta Shu. He has contacts and influence, but he too will find that the moon can be a perilous place for any traveller.

Finally, there is Chan Qi. She is the daughter of the Minister of Finance, and without doubt a person of interest to those in power. She is on the moon for reasons of her own, but when she attempts to return to China in secret, the events that unfold will change everything – on the moon, and on Earth.

Red Moon is a magnificent novel of space exploration and political revolution from New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson.

Reviews

This may well be Robinson's masterpiece and is surely the most important piece of sf in years
MORNING STAR
Robinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experience
SciFiNow
One of the finest writers of his generation
Locus
There have been more than a few environmental catastrophe tales set in a future New York, but possibly none of them have been this interesting
LOCUS
Another stellar effort from one of the masters of the genre
Booklist
Starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic
THE CONVERSATION
Sci-fi fans will love the detail and the optimism about humanity's future in space
Wall Street Journal
A deeply realised world that feels more like a peep into our future than a work of fiction
New Scientist
A wise and big-hearted novel to read and then, straight away, read again
SFX
Robinson's writing is so evocative that you can imagine that any one of his paragraphs could feature in the film of the book . . . a thoughtful, innovative page turner
STARBURST
Robinson is one of the world's finest working novelists, in any genre. New York 2140 is a towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilisation
GUARDIAN
Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there
BLOOMBERG BUSINESS WEEK
Even at 600-plus pages, there's a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . . Robinson handles setpieces with aplomb
SFX
Like all great sci-fi, New York 2140 is as much inward-looking as it is forward- . . . Robinson's work has a strong, intelligent social conscience
GQ
The lunar landscape is a source of beautifully described detail
Kirkus
Any new novel by the great Kim Stanley Robinson is always an event and Red Moon doesn't disappoint
Independent
Utterly immersive and unexpectedly hopeful
RT BOOK REVIEWS
A masterpiece
The Times
A compelling vision of the future
Science
It's near impossible to capture the vibrance of the entire city in the span of one single novel, yet Kim Stanley Robinson manages to do just that and more
NEWSWEEK
Beautiful descriptions of lunar landscapes
Guardian
One of the most exciting books in climate change fiction yet written... Both immensely readable and timely
