Arriving in the future, Oates stubbornly sticks to his old explorer job and sets off on an intergalactic adventure that leads to both knowledge and self-knowledge.
The first part of this audiobook appeared as a novella in Analog Science Fiction magazine (April 2001) under the title "May Be Some Time." It was a finalist for both the Nebula and the Hugo awards.

Would you listen to Revise the World again? Why?
Probably not. I have never listened to the same book twice.
What other book might you compare Revise the World to and why?
Connie Willis! And that is a HUGE compliment. Captain Titus Oates is that rarest of literary characters: extraordinary... and credible. He is an alien: an Edwardian gentleman. He is incredible and incomprehensible. And very human.
The secondary characters are somewhat overwhelmed by "Cap", but they are full enough to give him relief.
I will be listening to more Clough, in hopes of finding someone as riveting as Titus.
Which character – as performed by Eric Yves Garcia – was your favorite?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The charge of the light brigade.
Any additional comments?
There's a story, of course. A good one. Who cares?
