Praise for Orion

“Never-stop action and mind-bending concepts combine to make Orion absolutely unforgettable....Ben Bova brings it to intense life on a canvas spread over time and space.” —Isaac Asimov

“Slambang SF adventure mingles with speculative theology in this gripping story of an immortal's hatred, a mortal's love, and a death-struggle that spans a million years. Be warned: do not start this book if you anticipate any pressing obligations--a need to sleep, say--during the next twenty-four hours or so.” —Spider Robinson
