About this Series
A world of endless sky, with no land, no gravity: this is Virga, a fullerene balloon universe three thousand kilometers in diameter. In this world of author Karl Schroeder’s creation we are given a rare and penetrating look into the post-human condition. Beginning in the seminal science fiction novel Sun of Suns, the saga of Virga introduces us to the people of stubborn pride and resilience who have made this world their home. But lurking beyond the walls of Virga is the mysterious threat known only as Artificial Nature. Virga is hard science fiction space opera taken to the next level. “Mix in one part thrilling action, one part screaming-cool steampunk tech, and one part worldbuilding and you’ve got Sun of Suns. And oh, what worldbuilding! Schroeder is a master.” (Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing).
