A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. Presentation copy with signed inscription by Stubbs to his editor on the title page. HALF LIFE, set on another puzzle planet, in this case Titan, confronts various protagonists -- none of whom actually meet one another, as they are in quarantine due to the opportunistic plagues which are destroying Homo sapiens on Earth -- with challenges of a dauntingly impersonal nature; though the creation of disease-resistant strains of life may be the saving outcome." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. A nice association copy. (#103370). N° de réf. du libraire 103370

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Seventy-five years from now, the human race on Earth is in trouble -- perhaps even facing extinction -- because of the rapid evolution of diseases. A crew of young men and women travel to the moons of Saturn to investigate the biochemistry of the pre-life conditions there in the slim hope of discovering something that might save Earth. Nearly half of them have died on the way when the book opens, for they all have incurable diseases, doing most of their exploration with virtual-reality machinery. They race to find answers across the surface of an alien landscape with death close behind...and gaining. Half Life is pure hard SF adventure, and Clement is the best. Half Life is his first novel in this decade and very much upholds his own high standard -- this is one of the hard SF novels of the 1990s.

From the Publisher:

"Hal Clement brought a new seriousness to the extrapolative hard SF story, and his vividness of imagination--his sense that the Universe is wonderful--has generally overcome the awkwardness of his narrative technique. He is a figure of importance to the genre." --The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction
