Description

After a global chemical war most of humanity has perished. Those who remain exist in isolated communities, not knowing if any other such communities survive. But the situation is getting worse: in one community its leaders know that if they don't leave they'll all be dead in a few years.

There is a planet eleven light years away that might support life. If they can build a ship to get there, and if it is sufficiently Earth-like, and if there isn't a hostile civilisation living there already, they might just have a chance of a future.

The decision is made to go. But the consequences of that decision are so much more dramatic than any of the travellers could ever have dreamt.

This is the first novel in the author's 'First Contact' science fiction series. All are very different but have that common theme; man's first contact with alien life.

Customer Reviews

Aupes - An interesting social commentary ?

A combination of insightful comment on human history and some of its downfalls coupled with the inevitable "what if" scenario if ever life on other planets were ever to be discovered.

This is not your run of the mill sci-fi book about marauding aliens and a gladiatorial need to get rid of them. But instead a well thought out consideration that mankind just might need more help than it thinks, but also has a great deal to offer as well.

Well worth a sci-if read.
