Dark experiments, dangerous ruins, fleeting ghosts and deadly conspiracies...

On the edge of the galaxy in a distant and terrible future, Imre Bergamasc

is reborn into a pieced-together body with the certain knowledge that he was the victim of an elaborate murder plot.

But neither his mind nor the history of his former life are as easily reassembled, so he sets out to follow the fragments of his memories and discover the reason for his elimination. Through interstellar graveyards, decaying megacities and bizarre star systems, he pursues whispers connecting the death of the worlds he once knew to his own murder.

Tracked by forces determined to thwart his efforts, Imre combs the wreckage of the future for the truth about himself--no matter how unbearable it may be.

In SATURN RETURNS, Sean Williams has created a compelling story of personal bravery and loyalty set against a huge backdrop of galactic disaster and the very end of civilization - Kevin J. Anderson

Sean has produced some good work in the past; he s had the opportunity to flex his writing muscles in a wide variety of projects. In Saturn Returns, I felt a new assuredness, a strength of voice that was compellingly entertaining and thought-provoking. Saturn Returns is Sean s best yet?go out and buy it. - AUREALIS

Well-written, exciting and surprisingly smart despite being very accessible, it is genuinely difficult to find fault with Sean Williams Saturn Returns but I think that maintaining the perfectly balanced lightness of touch will become increasingly difficult as the series goes on. The fact that the book s plot relies so much on conspiracies wrapped up in concepts of personal identity means that Williams faces a real challenge in trying to keep the series both intelligent and fun without either fudging the plot or bogging the whole thing down in endless exposition. This concern aside, Saturn Returns is a great little book and I honestly look forward to the rest of the series. - SF DIPLOMAT

'Adelaide author, Sean Williams writes exceedingly good space opera. He's a master storyteller, carefully crafting tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats. Saturn Retur
