"Great collection of short stories"
5 stars"

With Resplendent, Baxter does for his Destiny's Children saga what Vacuum Diagrams did to his Xeelee Sequence. Both these books provide more detail, fill in gaps, and generally expand on the universes Baxter has created.

Both the Xeelee sequence and the Destiny's Children saga occur in the same universe, one where humanity has all but conquered the galaxy, and is in the midst of war with a seemingly all-powerful alien species, the Xeelee.

Resplendent contains stories ranging from humanity's oc­cupation at the hands of (another) alien species, the Qax, to humanity's do­mination of the galaxy.

This is definitely a must have for any reader of the Destiny's Chil­dren saga!

Description

RESPLENDENT is a collection of stories that encompasses mankind's epic fight for survival against the Xeelee, a narrative of how man will change and evolve over our epic journey out into the universe. These tales will encompass the rise of sub-molecular empires in the first nanoseconds after the Big Bang to mankind's final transformation. Full of cutting-edge science, descriptions of time and space on a mind-boggling scale and memorable, all-too-human characters. It is both the capstone to one of the most significant series in the history of SF and a remarkable achievement in its own right. This is a mature and uniquely talented writer at the height of his powers.
