A propos de cet article

Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "The aliens displaced from the outline of LUCIFER'S HAMMER come into their own here, in an invasion story that aspires to be the definitive modern version of the theme, just as THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE attempted to provide a definitive first contact story. Spectacular in scale and detail. Compare Wells's THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (1898) and Heinlein's THE PUPPET MASTERS (1951) to put the story in historical perspective." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-809. 1986 Hugo nominee. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#3888). N° de réf. du libraire 3888

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From the Inside Flap "NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN NIVEN AND POURNELLE. I LOVED IT!" --Tom Clancy They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods. Now the conquerors are descending on the American heartland, demanding servile surrender--or death for all humans. "ROUSING . . . THE BEST OF THE GENRE." --The New York Times Book Review --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
