Gollancz reissue Baxter's 2002 novel Evolution as part of their future classics series. Each novel in this series is presented with ultra-modern new jacket designs and this velvety-textured one is my favourite! Evolution is a collection of stories that ingeniously weave together to form an over-arching narrative. The protagonist is Evolution itself.
"... follows the ebb and flow of one stream of the great river of DNA. It is a stream that will pick up, and then let go, mankind. Darwinian evolution is dramatized as a constant life and death struggle, a heroic story of endurance. It is a story that transcends generations, species, mankind and, in the end, the Earth itself."
