Product Details

Praise

“A knockout . . . In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind—and this is one of them.”—Arthur C. Clarke
 
“Bob Forward writes in the tradition of Hal Clement’s Mission of Gravity and carries it a giant step (how else?) forward.”—Isaac Asimov
 
Dragon’s Egg is superb. I couldn’t have written it; it required too much real physics.”—Larry Niven
 
“This is one for the real science-fiction fan.”—Frank Herbert
 
“Robert L. Forward tells a good story and asks a profound question. If we run into a race of creatures who live a hundred years while we live an hour, what can they say to us or we to them?”—Freeman J. Dyson
 
“Forward has impeccable scientific credentials, and . . . big, original, speculative ideas.”The Washington Post
