Publisher Description

“One of the best SF writers in the business . . . [Manifold: Origin is] filled with marvelous scientific speculations, strange events, novel concepts, and an awe-inspiring sense of the wonders of the universe.”—Science Fiction Chronicle

In the year 2015, astronaut Reid Malenfant is flying over the African continent, intent on examining a mysterious glowing construct in Earth’s orbit. But when the very fabric of the sky tears open, spilling living creatures to the ground and pulling others inside (including his wife, Emma), Malenfant’s quest to uncover the unknown becomes personal. While desperately searching to discover what happened to the woman he loves, Malenfant embarks upon an adventure to the very fount of human development . . . on earth and beyond.

Manifold Wrap-up

This is a decent conclusion to an outstanding trilogy. It's a rather drastic departure from the first two volumes, but there's still much to appreciate.

Sample Before Buying

I absolutely loved Baxter's Manifold: Time. It's one of the best Hard SF books I've read in a very long time. It's full of giant, brilliant ideas of dazzeling scope and beauty. And Manifold: Space is quite simply outstanding. But the sample of Manifold: Origin gave me cause for serious concern. Intelligent reviews from multiple sources have confirmed my disappointment. I won't be buying this book.
