Synopsis

Sentient. Intelligent. Extraordinary.

An SFBC Original Event.

In science fiction, nothing says sensawunda like a Big Dumb Object--a colossal, extremely powerful machine of unknown purpose and origin. It's that feeling that editor Jonathan Strahan was after when he asked six of today's finest authors to write for Godlike Machines. And they succeed brilliantly!

Alastair Reynolds unlocks the secrets inside an alien spaceship--secrets that could change the world... if only a repressive regime would believe its last surviving explorer.

Stephen Baxter sends wormwhole builders to Titan, but what they discover there may fuel their wildest dreams... or destroy them.

Cory Doctorow turns the idea of godlike machines on its head with replicating machines that turn cities back into wilderness.

Sean Williams leads a spacer agent through a subterranean Structure... and into space-time itself.

Robert Reed--in a story about the ancient, Jupiter-sized Great Ship--looks at a strange passenger who has been on board far longer than seems possible.

Greg Egan gives us an alien technology only he could imagine--a wandering world that's inexplicably warm enough to support life.

Made from the pure stuff of SF, these unique, all-new adventures are nothing less than awesome!
