Neanderthal Parallax #01: Hominids

Neanderthal Parallax #01: Hominids Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hominids examines two unique species of people. We are one of those species; the other is the Neanderthals of a parallel world where they become the dominant intelligence. The Neanderthal civilization has reached heights of culture and science comparable to our own, but with radically different history, society, and philosophy. Ponter Boddit, a Neanderthal physicist, accidentally pierces the barrier between the worlds and is transferred to our universe. Almost immediately recognized as a Neanderthal, but only much later as a scientist, he is quarantined and studied, alone and bewildered, a stranger in a strange land. But Ponter is also befriended ? by a doctor and a physicist who share his questing intelligence, and especially by Canadian geneticist Mary Vaughan, a woman with whom he develops a special rapport. Ponter's partner, Adikor Huld, finds himself with a messy lab, a missing body, suspicious people all around and an explosive murder trial. How can he possibly prove his innocence when he has no idea what actually happened to Ponter? A rapidly plotted, anthropologically saturated speculative novel? with] Sawyer-signature wide appeal.? ?The Globe & Mail
