Kim Stanley Robinson's fascinating new novel tells of "... the story of the incredible life - and death - of Galileo, the First Scientist."
Published in hardcover from Harper Voyager (thus predating the US release by some months), Galileo's Dream looks like a dead cert for those of us who, like me, loved Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. Robinson appears to be amongst that dwindling group of writers who for some reason still resist an official (or even unofficial in his case) internet presence - hopefully someone will put this right soon enough, but for now, here's a link to the Harpercollins page for this release.
