Blue Remembered Earth Trailer Launch

Gollancz is very pleased to bring you the stunning book trailer for Alastair Reynolds’ new novel Blue Remembered Earth.

One hundred and fifty years from now, in a world where Africa is the dominant technological and economic power, and where crime, war, disease and poverty have been banished to history, Geoffrey Akinya wants only one thing: to be left in peace, so that he can continue his studies into the elephants of the Amboseli basin. But Geoffrey’s family, the vast Akinya business empire, has other plans. After the death of Eunice, Geoffrey’s grandmother, erstwhile space explorer and entrepreneur, something awkward has come to light.

Eunice’s ashes have already have been scattered in sight of Kilimanjaro. But the secrets she died with are about to come back out into the open, and they could change everything.

One secret, two people, an infinity of futures.


Jen works in the Gollancz/Indigo marketing team. Originally from New York, she talks too loud (and far too fast). When not marketing books or devising evil genius plans (as she prefers to think of marketing) she reads too much, adventures as much as possible and is learning the difference between US and UK English (it’s a complex process). She has a weakness for brilliant YA novels, fairy tales, myths, chocolate tea and trashy American TV. She also has a pathological hatred of mayo. You can follow her on Twitter: @gennmcmenemy

    Nice nod to 2001 at the end there!

  • Richard B

    Nice typo in the video title, other than that, looks awesome!

  • Marcus

    Typo now fixed, many thanks! Always the small things that slip by…

  • Linda P

    Very nice trailer – intriguing which makes me curious. One thing though, I’d think Kilamanjaro wouldn’t have any snow by then.

  • Al R

    Funnily enough, the absence and then return of snow to Kilimanjaro figures in the story.

  • Leon

    I dont think I can wait any longer. Its been far to long.
    Any chance of a trip back to the Revelation Space universe in the near future..
