Ness unexpectedly finds himself embroiled in events driven by his friend's success. Despite not having the easiest of openings (you really have to force yourself to get past the first few pages), this really is a superb opening to a wonderful Sci-Fi trilogy. This is like no other fiction I have read. If your browser blocks popups, click the popup info bar to allow these pages. And finally we get the twist, probably Banks' finest, that makes us immediately turn back to page 1 and read it all again in a completely different context.

Some researchers say life could have traveled from Mars to Earth inside a space rock. 3. The drive to find huge quantities of coal to power the steam engines of industrial capitalism led to a reconception of time as profound as the Copernican reconception of space.

Hard sf uses the rules of a deterministic universe to show us that our fate not yet sealed. Consider Gernsback's "The Magnetic Storm'' (1917), a story set in the near future during World War I involving a logical application of then-current technology: a large-scale effort to generate magnetic fields to disable enemy equipment, endorsed as feasible by Nicolas Tesla.
