    Summary: 
    SF and graphic-novel writer Roberson spins an entertaining tale of a cryogenically frozen spaceship captain who wakes up 12,000 years in the future. RJ Stone rises to a startling new society, the multiworld Human Entelechy, and a startling new concept of humanity (the definition of human having been expanded to include "uplifted" animal species and artificial sentient beings). Stone, still trying to get his bearings in this new world, is offered a tantalizing job: to captain the first faster-than-light spaceship. Naturally, it turns out to be a highly risky proposition. Tonally, the novel is a bit uneven: sometimes it sounds like a space opera (suggesting such authors as Alastair Reynolds and Neal Asher), and at other times like a light comedy. On the other hand, the story is captivating, full of imaginative technologies (interlinks, thresholds, and some very nifty personal weaponry) and inventive characters: dog-people, Anachronists (who re-create the past and get it almost entirely wrong), and a sort of holographic re-creation of Stone's long-dead shipmate. It's impossible not to like the book, and readers will eagerly await the sequel the author seems to promise with the book's final words.
