''a very substantial novel, which best exemplifies to date (1995) his control over the instruments of 1990s hard SF: wormholes, agathics to forestall death, genetic engineering and cosmogony on the hugest scale. The series itself ostensibly concerns the attempts of an almost fatally wearied corporation-run Earth -- reminiscent of Cordwainer Smith -- to fend off the panicked aggressions of an ancient starfaring species, itself hiding from enemies of its own ilk; but the pleasures of this ongoing sequence seem more and more to lie in the increasingly comprehensive physical history of the entire Universe adumbrated in 'Eternal Light''' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
