Fantastic Reviews has just posted their thoughts on John Meaney's To Hold Infinity, beginning with some nice words for the Pyr imprint itself. Aaron Hughes calls the novel, "an example of everything Pyr Books is getting right. In only two years, Pyr has become one of the most reliable publishers of high-quality science fiction in the market. Editor Lou Anders consistently produces well-packaged books of real literary merit that are also very entertaining. While it has published plenty of excellent original work, a key to Pyr's success has been obtaining reprint rights to outstanding British and Australian authors who have been neglected in the U.S."
They give a little background on the novel - which is a completely stand-alone tale set in the same universe as Meaney's Nulapeiron Sequence but earlier in the history of that universe, and which was a 1998 British Science Fiction Association Award nominee for Best Novel. Aaron nails the future era of To Hold Infinity as being "not quite post-singularity science fiction, but at least near-singularity," before concluding that the novel is "an absorbing story peopled with well-developed characters and loaded with interesting speculation about the future. Fans of the Nulapeiron books should not miss it, and I strongly recommend it to new readers as a great introduction to John Meaney."
