“A long, ambitious work, painted on a canvas as big as the solar system. The concept itself is even larger–the eventual linkup of various intelligent life forms of our galaxy, including humans, whales and several alien races. Carver carefully sets up his story and develops it in a meticulous fashion…it works very well.” —Publishers Weekly
