by Robert J. Sawyer
Bring a Neanderthal
from an alternate universe to our world? When the average SF writer
does it, he has the poor chap show up in the middle of a big city,
to be dazzled by traffic and modern life. When Rob Sawyer does it,
he has the Neanderthal materialize in the middle of a neutrino detector,
surrounded by heavy water, under two miles of rock. Not only that,
but he makes that unusual setting an integral part of the plot.
Cave man, indeed. Sawyer's books
are always stocked with great science, but even more, with great
people and characters. The combination makes for great fun, great
entertainment, and great reading.
See for yourself why Sawyer is one of the award-winningest authors
of our time, from the international Nebula to Canada's Aurora to
Rob has much more material at his website, SFWriter.com.
to Rob on Hour 25 online Radio (click the graphic)
science fiction is easy. Rising above the facts, figures, phenomena,
and fancy gadgets to create a story that is so much more is
where the true artistry lies. That rarefied air is where you
will find Robert J. Sawyer's novels. Near the top of that even
more select list, you will find Sawyer's latest novel, Hominids,
a blend of physics, anthropology, and sociology that snatches
up the reader with a sharp hook of a first sentence and just
keeps gaining speed." -Lisa Dumond, SFSite
