PRAISE FOR BEN BOVA:

'Bova is close to being the perfect hard SF writer . . . despite his position as one of the genre's grand masters, his almost youthful enthusiasm for high technology and astronomy pervades every page . . . infectious and refreshing . . . Bova creates some psychologically deep and haunting characters that raise the series together to a new level of excellence . . . The Silent War is a superlative end to an excellent trilogy.' Vector 237

'Flying the flag for good old-fashioned SF
la Asimov and Clarke. One of the biggest names in this old-school arena is Ben Bova, and the latest episode in his Asteroid Wars sequence delivers enough rollicking entertainment and intrigue . . . another complex tale of feuding, revenge and life amongst the stars . . . his biggest strength is a convincing grasp of science, and every aspect of this future world contains the correct levels of edgy realism, while there's no danger of the plot staying still long enough for boredom to be an issue.' SFX on The Silent War

'An epic space novel by an award-winning SF scribe.' Books Magazine

'Extraordinary . . . this kind of story is the reason science fiction exists in the first place.' Orson Scott Card

'Bova is a masterful storyteller and the narrative is compelling, almost hypnotic.' Vector

'Another attention-grabbing entry in a series that continues to grow in stature, scope and complexity. Once again, Bova in top form.' Kirkus Reviews

'I believe that the science fiction author who will have the greatest effect on the world is Ben Bova.' Ray Bradbury
