Remembrance of Earth’s Past by Cixin Liu

The Three-Body Problem   •   The Dark Forest   •   Death’s End

Not only a remembrance of Earth’s past but also a reflection on humanity’s future, the trilogy weaves a complex web of physics, philosophy and history, taking the reader from the Cultural Revolution to the heat death of the universe.

By turns somber, despairing, lyrical, and hopeful, the trilogy comprises the award-winning Three-Body Problem, The Dark Forest and Death’s End.  Across the series, Cixin Liu asks the desperate, melancholic question of our time: will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle?

To celebrate the conclusion of the series, Head of Zeus are printing a numbered and signed one-volume edition of the books that have captured the imagination of readers all over the world.

A signed and numbered special omnibus edition of all three books in Cixin Liu’s bestselling apocalyptic space opera

Peer & Press Reviews

A breakthrough book… a unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology, where kings and emperors from both western and Chinese history mingle in a dreamlike game world, while cops and physicists deal with global conspiracies, murders, and alien invasions in the real world.

George R R Martin (on The Three-Body Problem)

Full of surprises and wondrous ideas…  The depth of feeling here is extraordinary.  Emotion and science brilliantly co-exist.  To call the vision grand and ambitious seems a ridiculous understatement… I await the conclusion, Death’s End, in the spring with enormous anticipation.  I have no doubt that when this trilogy is complete we will have a masterpiece on our hands.

For Winters Nights (on The Dark Forest)

The grand scale continues in this third volume…  There are many layers to this story, built up and woven together to form an extraordinarily grand tale of mankind's future.  This volume brings the trilogy to a grand and satisfying conclusion.
