The Hydrogen Sonata

A Culture Novel. Nominiert: The John W Campbell Memorial Award 2013

The tenth Culture book from the awesome imagination of Iain M. Banks, a modern master of science fiction.

The Scavenger species are circling. It is, truly, the End Days for the Gzilt civilisation.

An ancient people, organised on military principles and yet almost perversely peaceful, the Gzilt helped set up the Culture ten thousand years earlier and were very nearly one of its founding societies, deciding not to join only at the last moment. Now they've made the collective decision to follow the well-trodden path of millions of other civilisations: they are going to Sublime, elevating themselves to a new and almost infinitely more rich and complex existence.

Amid preparations though, the Regimental High Command is destroyed. Lieutenant Commander (reserve) Vyr Cossont appears to have been involved, and she is now wanted - dead, not alive. Aided only by an ancient, reconditioned android and a suspicious Culture avatar, Cossont must complete her last mission given to her by the High Command. She must find the oldest person in the Culture, a man over nine thousand years old, who might have some idea what really happened all that time ago.

It seems that the final days of the Gzilt civilisation are likely to prove its most perilous.

Praise for the Culture series:

'Epic in scope, ambitious in its ideas and absorbing in its execution' Independent on Sunday

'Banks has created one of the most enduring and endearing visions of the future' Guardian

'Jam-packed with extraordinary invention' Scotsman

'Compulsive reading' Sunday Telegraph

Rezension
25 years after Banks's first Culture novel he is as exuberant, slyly funny and mind-stretchingly imaginative as ever SUNDAY TIMES
Portrait
Iain Banks, geboren 1954 in Dunfermline, Schottland, schrieb 1984 in London seinen ersten Roman, der in 20 Sprachen übersetzt wurde und ihn auf einen Schlag weltberühmt machte. Seither folgten mehr als ein Dutzend erfolgreicher Romane. Unter dem Namen Iain M. Banks schrieb er auch Science-Fiction-Romane. Er lebte bis zu seinem Tod, 2013, in der Nähe von Edinburgh.
Zitat
The action tumbles along at a dizzying pace, bouncing among a fascinating array of characters and locales. It's easy to see why Banks's fertile, cheerfully nihilistic imagination and vivid prose have made the Culture space operas bestsellers and award favorites
