Quotes for Neptune Crossing:
One of the best SF novels of the year — Science Fiction Chronicle
"Jeff Carver is a hard sf writer who gets it right—his science and his people are equally convincing... from a chilling look at alien machine intelligence, to cutting-edge chaos theory, to the pangs of finite humans in the face of the infinite. If you like intriguing ideas delivered in an exciting plot, this is your meat." —Gregory Benford
"Masterfully captures the joy of exploration." — Publishers Weekly
"Reveals an alien encounter brushing hard against a soul, and takes us from there to the far reaches of the cosmos, all with the sure touch of a writer who knows his science. Jeff Carver has done it again!" —David Brin
For Strange Attractors:
"A dazzling, thrilling, innovative space opera...probably Carver's best effort to date."
"An irresistibly readable story line reinforced by fascinating speculative science. Readers who come this far will be hooked for the series' duration."
"Carver's latest novel showcases his own fertile imagination and his talent for creating a host of engagingly sympathetic characters."
"Carver is at his rousing best in this wild ride into the heart of an enigmatic world beyond the Milky Way. This is science fiction out at the frontier. Maybe beyond the frontier."
For The Infinite Sea:
"Another splendid adventure, with intriguing puzzles, first-rate problem-solving, and an impressive array of alien characters, motives, and methods."
"An absolutely terrific book. Carver is heir apparent to Larry Niven as the king of hard SF: his stories revolve around ideas that are every bit as big as Niven's, and his aliens are every bit as fascinating. Chaos theory says outcomes are unpredictable, but here's one that's a sure thing: if you start reading The Infinite Sea, you won't be able to put it down until the very last page."
—Robert J. Sawyer
