Book Trailer: Blue Remembered Earth

Gollancz just posted a book trailer for Alastair Reynolds' new novel Blue Remembered Earth. This is one of the titles I'm looking forward to in 2012. The trailer looks pretty cool and the premise sounds intriguing. I'm definitely adding it to my wishlist.

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.

Blue Remembered Earth will be released on the 19th of January 2012, so luckily we won't have to wait long.
