A return to form for Egan.
The Science is still over my head but there's not as much of it as in the Clockwork Rocket. The plot is interesting and illustrates the science naturally and engagingly.

The Eternal Flame. Greg Egan. Greg Egan's The Clockwork Rocket introduced readers to an exotic universe where the laws of physics are very different from our own, where the speed of light varies in ways Einstein would never allow, and where intelligent life has evolved in unique and fascinating ways. Now Egan continues his epic tale of alien beings embarked on a desperate voyage to save their world.
The generation ship Peerless is in search of advanced technology capable of sparing their home planet from imminent destruction.
Strange Horizons - The Eternal Flame by Greg Egan By Karen Burnham
In theory, the ship is traveling fast enough that it can traverse the cosmos for generations-and still return home only a few years after they departed. But a critical fuel shortage threatens to cut their urgent voyage short, even as a population explosion stretches the ship's life-support capacity to its limits. One of the expedition's founders dreamed of discovering the Eternal Flame: a way to generate thrust without consuming any fuel at all.
The inhabitants on board the Peerless have some hard choices to make - and the wrong one could spell extinction for their entire race. Sign up to the hive.
