It’s only a …er… matter of weeks before Matter arrives in bookstores. The first Culture novel since Look to Windward, Matter is one of the most anticipated science fiction novels coming out this year. We’re thrilled to be publishing it, and thrilled to offer a first look at the stunning prologue.

Click here to read the prologue of Matter, out this February from Orbit in the UK and the US.

    I’m counting down the days…

    What I really want to know are the details of any signing/readings the great man will/may be undertaking to coincide with the publishing of the book.
