Read full description of the books:
Stephen Baxter to me is one of those hard science fiction writers who comes up with some amazing ideas and then sets about blowing your mind with them. Anti-ice is no different, from its discovery to the final pages of the book what you have here is an alternate history story driven by an extra ordinary discovery.
Stephen Baxter first caught my eye with his Time ships book after realising it was linked to Well's The Time Machine (okay I can see I am starting to get distracted), anyway Baxter has always been able to take his knowledge and understanding of science and technology and weave them in to a compelling story, Anti-ice is no different. I will at this point say that alternate history stories really have not caught my attention although I have nothing against them, this book however didn't feel like those stories and as such didnt turn me off it.
I will at this point have to say that although this is the edition I have on my book shelf there is an alternate edition which to me I always connect to this title (which has caused me on a couple of occasions to "loose" this book).
So to me Stephen Baxter has some amazing ideas and is still going strong in a sub-genre that by its very nature is always changing after all what we think as hard science fiction today could be something totally different tomorrow.
