Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Monumental devastation will sweep across the globe if the newly-discovered Hamner-Brown comet collides with the one major obstacle in its path: Earth.

For millionaire Tim Hamner, the comet is a ticket to immortality. For filmmaker Harvey Randall, it's a shot to redeem a flagging career. And for astronauts John Baker and Rick Delanty, it's a second chance for glory in outer space.

But for a world gripped by comet fever, fascination quickly turns to fear. And only those who survive the impact will know the even greater terror, when rich and poor, politicians and killers, turn to each other or against each other--and the remnants of humanity grow savage to battle for what little remains . . .

Including an all-new introduction by the authors!

Synopsis:

For millionaire Tim Hamner, the comet he helped to discover is a ticket to immortality. For filmmaker Harvey Randall, it's a chance to redeem a flagging career. And for astronauts John Baker and Rick Delanty, it's a second chance for glory in outer space.

But for a world gripped by comet fever, the massive, hurtling celestial rock that is Hamner-Brown will mean death and devastation as it races toward an apocalyptic rendezvous with Earth. And the only fate worse than annihilation will be life in the aftermath when the remnants of humanity turn savage to battle for what little remains...

In the wake of Hale-Bopp, here is a thrilling comet encounter: the trade paperback re-launch of this classic bestseller.
