This was one of the first "epic" sci-fi series that I ever read back in the early 80's. Needless to say, I absolutely loved it and went on to love Steel Beach by Varley even more. He is a wonderful writer!

I picked up this older used copy from a charity sale, but it is in remarkabley good condition. It is a 1984 edition, the spine is not cracked at all, the cover is not bent or marked up and over all it is quite nice. Please note the cover above is different from that of this copy.

About this title(from the alibris.com website):
Varley's monumental trilogy is hailed as a modern triumph of the imagination by critics and fans--an epic that begins with humankind's exploration of a massive satellite orbiting Saturn, and the shocking discovery that the satellite is a giant alien being named Gaea. This first novel of the trilogy.

This just arrived -- many thanks, Minerva101. I hadn't heard of either author or title before seeing the NPR list, so I'm looking forward to discovering a new favourite!

The world-building in Titan is excellent and imaginative. I enjoyed reading about the environment and the species living within Gaea, especially their diferent forms of communication. I also liked the part that Science Fiction played within the story: usually characters within SF seem never to have read or watched any SF, so it was refreshing to see a different approach here.

Thanks for sharing, Minerva101.

I'm going to release Titan at Cineworld before the Edinburgh Film Festival screening of Taboor, which the brochure notes say is "indescribably strange Iranian sci-fi".
