Contest Judge Robert Sawyer Releases #17
I'm delighted to announce the release of my 17th novel, ROLLBACK, which has just been published by Tor. ROLLBACK is a novel about rejuvenation and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. You'll find oodles about the book here:
The book is already out, but the official Canadian launch party in Toronto is Saturday, April 14, at 3:00 p.m. at Bakka-Phoenix Books, which is now at 697 Queen Street West (just west of Bathurst).
And the US launch party is Sunday, April 15, at 3:00 p.m., at Write Book and Gift -- the store co-owned by Hugo Award-finalist Nick DiChario -- in Honeoye Falls, NY.
In addition, I'll be traveling to 20 cities in the United States and Canada to promote the release of the ROLLBACK:

The early reviews for ROLLBACK have been great:
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: "Sawyer, who has won Hugo and Nebula awards, may well win another major SF award with this superior effort." (starred review, denoting a work of exceptional merit)
QUILL & QUIRE (the Canadian publishing trade journal): "ROLLBACK is a reminder of why Sawyer is one of our most highly regarded writers of speculative fiction, able to handle the demands of the heart and the cosmos with equal skill."
ANALOG: "Extraordinarily fresh and thought-provoking. ROLLBACK is a thoroughly engaging story, with some of the most memorable people you'll ever meet."
SCIFIDIMENSIONS: "ROLLBACK is a shoo-in to be short-listed for next year's major awards."
