All started with The Golden Age, persisted with The Phoenix Exultant, and now concluding within the Golden Transcendence, The Golden Age trilogy is Grand house Opera, an SF event saga within the culture of A. E. Van Gogt, Roger Zelazny and Cordwainer Smith. it's an extraordinary tale of super-science, an exciting ask yourself tale that recaptures the elan of SF's golden age writers within the suspenseful and passionate story of Phaeton, a lone insurgent unsatisfied in utopia.
The finish of the Millennium is coming near near, while all minds, human, posthuman, cybernetic, sophotechnic, might be quickly merged into one solar-system-spanning supermind referred to as the Transcendence. this isn't basically the achievement of 1000 years of goals, it's a day of doom, while the common brain will move judgment at the all of the races of humanity and transhumanity.
The powerful send Phoenix Exultant is ultimately within the arms of her grasp, Phaethon the Exile is at her helm and his dream of starflight in alive once again. he's being hunted through alien brokers, the eerie and lethal Lords of the Silent Oecumene, who may thieve the Phoenix Exultant and switch it right into a weapon.
The all-encompassing brain of the Golden Transcendence is waking. Will it advocate Phaeton's dream or face the 1st interstellar battle?
