An Earth like planet several light years distant Fueled by Nathan's legacy generations of Arkwrights are drawn together and pulled apart by the enormity of the task and weight of their na. This was definitely a love letter to science fiction and it was surprising in a good way In this novel we follow a family through multiple generations all with the end goal of building a starship to colonize an earth like planet out in the universe We get to see their family struggles aging dying births etc All the while working towards the common goal It's a kind of wonderful flip on the traditional generation ship idea where we have generations building and overseeing the travel of the ship which is only carrying genetic material from the original generation and others who have worked on the project along the way The payoff in the end was uite lovelyThanks NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review

This SF was pretty much awesome and it was awesome for entirely different reasons as the book progressed I've never read Allen Steele before now but he's just made a fan of me It's obvious he's well read and respectful of the entire genre from the get go and reading about the early days of SF was a huge treat Nathaniel Arkwright was a fictional author sliding into one of the Big Four Golden Age SF masters ranking up there with Heinlein Clarke Asimov Anderson Pohl Williamson and so many other great names that I too have read and loved and we read about hob nobbing and the sheer wonder and the excitement that they all felt about a singular dream of imagination hope and in a few very specific cases SPACEIs this all it's about though Of course not I grew to love Arkwright's granddaughter as she discovered what her estranged grandfather was up to with his colleagues how he wanted his legacy to continue after his death and beyond all the damn cool nostalgia aspects we then get into some very nice riffs with other classic SF tales such as Sagan's Contact as a plot device then Anderson's Boat of a Million Years then Asimov's Robot series about not putting all our eggs in one basket and then we're suddenly in space for real and it's all about Real Science Real Hope and then we've even got a taste of dystopia and a classic Big Save for the planet and if that wasn't enough we even get a full world building plot and a classic Save From Ignorance plot and I was absolutely delightedWhy Because the author not only made all my favorite Golden Age SF authors into walk on characters involved in their own schemes of greatness but we also changed the whole world into some of the greatest SF ideas and explored so many of the most wonderful plots and hard science beauties to ever grace the page as wellWhat could make such an SF novel better Good writing clear characters and the love of the genre that just oozes across the page and here's the beauty Allen Steele has it I am FANBOY And this is even better if you're conversant with the old field too
