From a near-future Earth to an interstellar civilization, multi-award-winning author Ken MacLeod’s Engines of Light series is a grand science fiction epic of humans colonizing distant worlds and becoming part of an even greater community of aliens. As humanity takes its place among the stars, centuries-old conspiracies come to light, and galactic politics between aliens threatens to ignite wars.
“Plenty of eye-kicks and some wonderful set pieces, from the arrival of a gigantic starship to the herding of dinosaurs by flying saucers…Cosmonaut Keep is a portal to a deeply imagined future history that parlays X-Files paranoia about Area 51 and alien Greys into a vast interstellar community watched over by microcosmic gods.”—Interzone
