The Boat of a Million Years - Poul Anderson

Hugo Award: Best Novel nominee (1990). Nebula Award: Best Novel nominee (1989). Prometheus Award: Best Novel nominee (1990).

Others have written SF on the theme of immortality, but in The Boat of a Million Years, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on, unaging, undying, through the centuries and millenia. We follow them through over 2000 years, up to our time and beyond – to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.

A milestone in modern science fiction, a New York Times Notable Book on its first publication in 1989, this is one of a great writer's finest works.

"Here at last, the big Anderson book we've all been waiting for! An unforgettable novel, with a cast as big as mankind and an adventure that charts the course of time. Read it, enjoy it, savor it... this may well be the best book of the year, hell, decade." – Jerry Pournelle
