"Galileo's Dream" is KSR's latest novel and it is due to be published in 2009. According to the latest publishing and reseller sources, it should be available in August for the UK and in December for the USA.

Product description:

In a novel of stunning dimensions, the acclaimed author of the MARS trilogy brings us the story of the incredible life -- and death -- of Galileo, the First Scientist. Late Renaissance Italy still abounds in alchemy and Aristotle, yet it trembles on the brink of the modern world. Galileo's new telescope encapsulates all the contradictions of this emerging reality. Then one night a stranger presents a different kind of telescope for Galileo to peer through. Galileo is not sure if he is in a dream, an enchantment, a vision, or something else as yet undefined. The blasted wasteland he sees when he points the telescope at Jupiter, of harsh yellows and reds and blacks, looks just like hell as described by the Catholic church, and Galileo is a devout Catholic. But he's also a scientist, perhaps the very first in history. What he's looking at is the future, the world of Jovian humans three thousand years hence. He is looking at Jupiter from the vantage point of one of its moons whose inhabitants maintain that Galileo has to succeed in his own world for their history to come to pass. Their ability to reach back into the past and call Galileo "into resonance" with the later time is an action that will have implications for both periods, and those in between, like our own. By day Galileo's life unfurls in early seventeenth century Italy, leading inexorably to his trial for heresy. By night Galileo struggles to be a kind of sage, or an arbiter in a conflict ...but understanding what that conflict might be is no easy matter, and resolving his double life is even harder. This sumptuous, gloriously thought-provoking and suspenseful novel recalls Robinson's magnificent Mars books as well as bringing to us Galileo as we have always wanted to know him, in full.

I'm not entirely used to this kind of blatant self-promotion, but here goes.

I was caught reading this novel by the newspaper man on the street and it will be in the Ukiah Daily Journal 06/05/11 in the Question Man. You can search it and see it on line when it comes out if anyone should want to.

Hans-Georg Lundahl  - Unfair to Galileo and to Geocentrism |2013-02-27 17:45:39
Hoping for a modern writer to accept Geocentrism as true is perhaps looking for a needle in a hay stack. You have myself and Sungenis and a few more.

But when Galileo calls a man "imbécile" and compares him to the "imbéciles" who think the earth stands still, when Galileo speaks about the vultures or whatever who attack him with Scripture ... OK, he did like to paint his opponents' views as ridiculous, but would he really go to such lengths?

Would Geocentrism have had to have ceased totally to be acceptable as mental baggage of a normally talented man to him?

I think it is unfair both to the "theory" - which is actually an affirmation of what we see as real - and to the man opposed to it.

After these two glimpses, I did not dare read further or see how St Robert Bellarmine was treated in the novel.

I am neither saying it is good or bad as a novel. I am saying it shows some insensitivity to the Century described.

Perhaps it is no accident the...
Hans-Georg Lundahl  - re: Unfair to Galileo and to Geocentrism |2013-02-27 17:47:39
Perhaps it is no accident the author's earlier successes include novels set on Mars, thus - if I understand things correctly - taking relative Heliocentrism as a matter of course.
Hans-Georg Lundahl  - Even more unfair, perhaps ... |2013-02-27 18:07:39
... is to make Galileo quasi a nervous wreck in part of the novel.

As far as I know, he did accept Geocentrism one year before he died, which means he had some capacity for calm reflection left.
