Forge of God (Inscribed By the Author)

(London, 1987): TOR. First Edition. Octavo. Item #027783

First printing inscribed and signed by the author. 474 pages, Described as a hard science fiction writer where science comes alive with dangerous consequences. This is the first in the Forge of God series. It was nominated for a Hugo and Nebula Award. It offers an explanation for the Fermi paradox. The novel features scenes and events, including the discovery of a nearly-dead alien in the desert, who clearly says in English, "I'm sorry, but there is bad news," and the alien's subsequent interrogation and autopsy; the discovery of an artificial geological formation and its subsequent nuclear destruction by a desperate military; and the Earth's eventual destruction by the mutual annihilation of a piece of neutronium and a piece of antineutronium dropped into Earth's core. A fine sharp cornered copy in a fine unclipped dust jacket.

Price: $50.00
