The Ice Company series is the sprawling
saga of a future Earth in a new Ice Age. Mankind lives in domed cities, connected by extended rail networks, controlled
by powerful companies which effectively rule the world.
This new Ice Age was created when the Moon exploded and the resulting debris blocked all of the Sun's light. Civilization
collapsed, and after several centuries of barbarism, the age of the Ice Companies eventually arose.
For its scope, complexity, ambition and craftsmanship, The Ice Company ranks with such science fiction masterpieces
as Foundation and Dune. It was first published in 1980 and won the 1982 French Science Fiction Grand Prize and
the 1988 Apollo Award.
This edition includes a bibliography of the series and detailed summaries of the first 34 volumes.
