From the critically acclaimed author of The Virex Trilogy, The Fall of Tartarus and numerous short stories, an exciting new novel:

Helix is a grandiose space opera, a story of exploration, alien contact and desperation. It follows the plight of a group of humans who crash land on a desolate alien planet. Daylight brings the discovery that the planet is merely one of thousands arranged in a vast spiral wound around a central sun.

The group set off to discover a more habitable Earth-like world, encountering bizarre alien races on the way. But they must also find a means to stay alive.

"Eric Brown is the name to watch in SF."
-Peter F Hamilton

"Eric Brown's Helix is a classic concept - a built world to dwarf Rama and Ringworld - a setting for a hugely imaginative adventure. Helix is the very DNA of true sf. This is the rediscovery of wonder."
- Stephen Baxter
