Synopsis

This doomsday masterpiece from the author of Eon and Hull Zero Three was a finalist for the Hugo and Nebula awards.

On July 26, Arthur Gordon learns that Europa, the sixth moon of Jupiter, has disappeared. Not hiding, not turned black, but gone.

On September 28th, Edward Shaw finds an error in the geological records of Death Valley. A cinder cone was left off the map. Could it be new? Or, stranger yet, could it be artificial? The answer may be lying beside it—a dying Guest who brings devastating news for Edward and for Planet Earth.

As more unexplained phenomena spring up around the globe—a granite mountain appearing in Australia, sounds emanating from the earth’s core, flashes of light among the asteroids—it becomes clear to some that the end is approaching, and there is nothing we can do.

In The Forge of God, award-winning author Greg Bear describes the final days of the world on both a massive, scientific scale and in the everyday, emotional context of individual human lives. Facing the destruction of all they know, some people turn to God, others to their families, and a few turn to saviors promising escape from a planet being torn apart. Will they make it in time? And who gets left behind to experience the last moments of beauty and chaos on earth?

Nominated for the Nebula, Hugo, and Locus Awards, The Forge of God is an engrossing read, breathtaking in its scope and in its detail.

    The Forge of God

    Wow. I Loved it. So many brilliant ideas. Great characters. A first contact novel that moves along at a great speed. Lots of science and lots to think about. Highly recommended for first contact lovers. I should have read this long ago.

    The Forge of God

    Inizia bene come thriller fantascientifico ambientato nei nostri giorni, anche se risente del tempo trascorso, visto che è stato scritto nel 1987. Poi però prende una piega misticheggiante che rimane in sottofondo e un po' ne compromette il finale. Discreto comunque.
