Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inherit the Stars: When they found the corpse on the Moon, wearing a spacesuit, lying in a grave of moon rocks, his identity was a complete mystery. The spacesuit was of a completely unfamiliar design. Then analysis showed that the corpse was 50,000 years old-meaning that he had somehow died on the Moon before the human race even existed. . . .

The Gentle Giants of Ganymede: On another moon, Jupiter's Ganymede, another mystery was found: a wrecked spacesuit, which had been there for millennia, and which obviously was designed for beings larger than the humans of Earth. The mystery seemed insoluble until another ship, manned by the strange humanoid giants arrived, and were very surprised to find humans inhabiting the Solar System. . . .

Synopsis:

Previously published by Del Rey Books as two separate novels--"Inherit the Stars" and "The Gentle Giants of Ganymede"--these two stories, now available in one volume, began Hogan's legendary Giants series and the career of a major SF talent.

About the Author

James P. Hogan was born in London in 1941 and studied general engineering at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, subsequently specializing in electronics and digital systems. His first novel, Inherit the Stars, which was also the first of his Giants series, was hailed as a major science fiction novel in the grand tradition, combining accurate cutting-edge science with living, breathing characters. Isaac Asimov raved that the novel was "Pure science fiction, " adding "Arthur Clarke, move over." In 1979 he became a full-time writer, and the electronics field's loss is every science fiction reader's gain. He now divides his time between Ireland and Florida.
