"Hominids"
by Robert J. Sawyer

Bring a Neanderthal from an alternate universe to our world?

As done by the average SF writer, the poor chap shows up in the middle of one of our big moderm cities to be dazzled by traffic and the joys of Cro Magnon living.

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 use of science is always outstanding - but it's his great characters that keep you coming back every time.

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 Japan's Seiun.

"Hard 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."
