Product description

From the Back Cover

ALIEN HAVE ARRIVED ON EARTH – AND THEY 'SEEM' FRIENDLY

Though bizarre to look at, the aliens easily make themselves understood. They hail from the Alpha Centauri system and call themselves Tosoks. Their mother ship has been damaged – the people of Earth are asked to manufacture replacement parts, with the offer of alien technology in return. It will take a couple of years. A wave of hope and joy spreads around the Earth: we are not alone!

But soon one of the aliens has been charged with the murder of TV’s most famous stargazer, thought to be the aliens’ friend. A tense courtroom drama unfolds…

And as justice is about to be served, another starship arrives from Alpha Centauri with different aliens on board, carrying news that eclipses all that has gone before.

PRAISE FOR NEBULA AWARD-WINNER ROBERT J. SAWYER:

The sense of fun and adventure SF had in its so called Golden Age … a modern sensibility … the best of both worlds’”
THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION

”Canada’s answer to Michael Crichton”
MONTREAL GAZETTE

About the Author

Robert J. Sawyer has been called “the dean of Canadian science fiction” by The Ottawa Citizen.

He is one of only seven writers in history—and the only Canadian—to win all three of the world’s top awards for best science-fiction novel of the year: the Hugo (which he won in 2003 for Hominids), the Nebula (which he won in 1995 for The Terminal Experiment), and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award (which he won in 2005 for Mindscan).

In total, Rob has authored over 18 science-fiction novels and won forty-one national and international awards for his fiction, including a record-setting ten Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Awards (“Auroras”) and the Toronto Public Library Celebrates Reading Award, one of Canada’s most significant literary honors. In 2008, he received his tenth Hugo Award nomination for his novel Rollback.

His novels have been translated into 14 languages. They are top-ten national mainstream bestsellers in Canada and have hit number one on the Locus bestsellers’ list.

Born in Ottawa in 1960, Rob grew up in Toronto and now lives in Mississauga (just west of Toronto), with poet Carolyn Clink, his wife of twenty-four years.

He was the first science-fiction writer to have a website, and that site now contains more than one million words of material.
