A Deepness in the Sky by Vernor Vinge Book Summary

Tor Essentials presents new editions of science fiction and fantasy titles of proven merit and lasting value, each volume introduced by an appropriate literary figure.

After thousands of years of searching, humans stand on the verge of first contact with an alien race. Two human groups: the Qeng Ho, a culture of free, innovative traders, and the Emergents, a ruthless society based on the technological enslavement of minds.

The group that opens trade with the aliens will reap unimaginable riches. But first, both groups must wait at the aliens' very doorstep, for their strange star to relight and for the alien planet to reawaken, as it does every two hundred and fifteen years...

Amidst terrible treachery, the Qeng Ho must fight for their freedom and for the lives of the unsuspecting innocents on the planet below, while the aliens themselves play a role unsuspected by Qeng Ho and Emergents alike.

More than just a great science fiction adventure, A Deepness In the Sky is a universal drama of courage, self-discovery, and the redemptive power of love.

This new Tor Essentials edition of Vernor Vinge's A Deepness In the Sky includes an introduction by the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award-winning Jo Walton, author of Among Others.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

I liked this very much- Engrossing read. A complicated and interesting tale of interplanetary traders thousands of years in the future. It took a month to read. It took some effort to get into it, because there are many characters and it has a sort of 'alien' feel to it - so much to learn and remember. Almost a chore. By the end it became very interesting and familiar, I read a few hundred SciFi (Futurist) books in the mid to late Seventies. Over the past year I've read a couple more. I chanced on this, sampled it, then bought it. I am glad I did. I like the authors use of familiar and unfamiliar names for the characters. Also a strange book. The idea of "focus" as slavery of a new sort was intriguing.

One of the best sci-fi epics!. Wonderfully well-written, intricately plotted, and jam-packed with enough freewheeling imagination for twelve books. Twisty futuristic concepts, paired with three-dimensional characters, human and non-human, it’s impossible not to connect with. I can’t wait to read it and experience it again!

One of my favorites. A book that I read every eight years or so. Just enough time for it to be fresh and new again.

Honest. Great message, but much lag time and not a lot of suspense like the first book. It’s hard to read until the very end.

Perfect for people with a brain. Such a beautiful and believable world. Perfect.

Epic in Scale and Storytelling. Fantastic and believable characters are enhanced by a brilliant set of intertwined plots and described by believable technology.
