New York 2140

Nebula Award for Best Novel for 2312, 2013

An Amazon Best Book of the Month for March 2017

The waters rose, submerging New York City. But the residents adapted and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been—though changed forever. Every street became a canal, every skyscraper an island …

Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building, Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides. And how we too will change.

Editorial Reviews

This ambitious hard SF epic shows Robinson at the top of his game... [A] poignant story, which admirably stretches the limits of human imagination.Publishers Weekly on Aurora[A] heart-warming, provocative tale.Scientific American on AuroraThis is hard SF the way it's mean to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully realized society. Robinson is an acknowledged sf master-his Mars trilogy and his stand-alone novel 2312 (2012) were multiple award winners and nominees-and this latest novel is sure to be a big hit with devoted fans of old-school science fiction.Booklist on AuroraIntellectually engaged and intensely humane in a way SF rarely is, exuberantly speculative in a way only the best SF can be, this is the work of a writer at or approaching the top of his game.Iain M. Banks on 2312Inherently epic stuff... expect interplanetary strife, conspiracies, more big ideas than most SF authors pack into a trilogy... [yet] this is ultimately in so many respects a book about Earth... a wise and wondrous novelSFX on 2312In his vibrant, often moving new novel, 2312, Robinson's extrapolation is hard-wired to a truly affecting personal love story. [...] Perhaps Robinson's finest novel, 2312 is a treasured gift to fans of passionate storytelling; readers will be with Swan and Wahram in the tunnel long after reaching the last page.LA TimesHumanity's first trip to another star is incredibly ambitious, impeccably planned and executed on a grand scale in on AuroraIf Interstellar left you wanting more, then this novel might just fill that longing.io9 on Aurora

Breaks us out of our well-ingrained, supremely well-rehearsed habits of apocalypse—and lets us see the option of a different future than permanent, hopeless standoff.”

Los Angeles Review of Books on Aurora

A rousing tribute to the human spirit.San Francisco Chronicle on Aurora [Robinson is] a rare contemporary writer to earn a reputation on par with earlier masters such as Isaac Asimov or Arthur C. Clarke.Chicago Tribune on Aurora The thrilling creation of plausible future technology and the grandness of imagination...magnificent.Sunday Times on Aurora

“A monumental tour-de-force…Robinson fills 2312 with joy and exuberance, danger and fear, and the steadily mounting suspense of a mystery that spans the planets…An amazing accomplishment.”
