It’s Joshua Valiente’s birthday, and the mighty stepper looks to spend it in pilgrimage to the High Megas, stepping away from civilization to have a think on life, love, and the pursuit of happiness in an ever-expanding series of worlds.

Or he would be having a think if he hadn’t just gotten his leg smashed in some far off, godforsaken Long Earth, far from anyone who might have an inkling as to where he is or any way of sending help. Luckily, a troll band has appeared, literally stepping in to save Joshua in his hours, or months in this case, of dire need.

And so begins the concluding volume of the epic series by two rock star voices in the sci-fi/fantasy genre.

The Long Cosmos is an epic novel, part of an epic series. It’s rich and funny, with heart-rending tragedy and finely honed wit. The late Terry Pratchett’s iconic humor remains present throughout. After all, it’s the only series where a Tibetan motorcycle repairman can find himself inside of a soda machine. As with all Long Earth novels, Stephen Baxter’s world-building keeps it strongly based in fact. The Long Cosmos is a suitable and satisfying conclusion to the Long Earth story.
