We are over at Kirkus for our regular column! It’s Thea’s turn today, with a look at a recently published science fiction epic in the vein of Arthur C. Clarke and Kim Stanley Robinson: Noumenon by Marina J. Lostetter.
It is the near future, and a star has been discovered–one whose observable luminescence suggests technology of intelligent life. The noumenon must be examined, and so humanity sends its best hope to the stars to make the centuries-long trek across the cosmos and back again. A sprawling narrative of vignettes following different generations of clones aboard this brave mission, Noumenon is one of Thea’s favorite reads of 2017 so far. Go over to Kirkus to get the full details.
