Cleverly argued and uncomfortably plausible ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH )
Brin tackles a plethora of cutting-edge concepts... with the skill of a visionary futurologist ... [conveying] the depth and breadth of his startling future. Existence is Brin's first novel in 10 years, and it's been well worth the wait ( GUARDIAN )
Brin's first novel in a decade is cause for celebration . . . Existence is bursting with ideas, including near-future tech, first contact with aliens, and the exploration of what it means to be human ( io9.com )
Brin's thoughtful, multilayered story explores a first contact scenario where every twist reveals greater peril . . . His longtime fans will especially appreciate that this story could be read as a prequel to 1983's Startide Rising, while those not familiar with his work will find it an impressive introduction to one of SF's major talents ( Publishers Weekly )
In Existence, David Brin takes on one of the fundamental themes in science fiction - and what is also one of the fundamental questions humanity faces in this century. Since Brin is both a great storyteller and one of the most imaginative writers around, Existence is not to be missed ( Vernor Vinge )
Take a world soaked in near-future strangeness and complexity . . . Add a beautiful alien artifact that turns out to be the spearpoint of a very dangerous, very ancient invasion . . . Hotwire with wisdom and wonder . . . Existence is as urgent and as relevant as anything by Stross or Doctorow, but with the cosmic vision of Bear or Benford. Brin is back --Stephen Baxter
Our continued existence was never a given.
We've always wanted to know our destiny. But when the end seems in sight, how will the world react?
An alien artefact plucked from Earth's orbit throws the world into chaos with both warning and a promise. For the prophet who dreams of new world order, survival means putting an end to democracy. For the movie mogul with a talent for spinning facts, the public doesn't know what's best for them. And for the reporter determined to discover the truth, the world needs to know what's at stake.
All are determined to hold off Armageddon.
All will play their part in what's to come.
Both brilliant and terrifying, David Brin's novel of the near future is a tour de force of storytelling. It is the work of a modern master of science fiction.
