Mini review: Michael Moorcock is said to have stated that "I think of myself as a bad writer with big ideas, but I would rather be that than a big writer with bad ideas." Something similar could be said for Alastair Reynolds in Revelation Space. This book is exactly what you would think you would get from a tech-geeky astrophysicist with a vivid imagination who has grown up on science fiction staples and now wants to try his wings. Unfortunately, no matter how big the ideas, a badly written book remains badly written. However, a writer with ideas can become a better writer.
