Publisher Comments:

On July 26th, Arthur Gordon learns that Europa, the sixth moon of Jupiter, has disappeared. Not hiding, not turned black, but gone. On September 28th, Edward Shaw finds an error in the geological records of Death Valley. A cinder cone was left off the map. Could it be new? Or, stranger yet, could it be artificial? The answer may be lying beside it a dying Guest who brings devastating news for Edward and for Planet Earth. As more unexplained phenomena spring up around the globe a granite mountain appearing in Australia, sounds emanating from the Earth?'s core, flashes of light amongst the asteroids it becomes clear to some that the end is approaching, and there is nothing we can do. In THE FORGE OF GOD, award-winning author Greg Bear describes the final days of the world on both a massive, scientific scale and in the everyday, emotional context of individual human lives. Facing the destruction of all they know, some people turn to God, others to their families, and a few turn to saviors promising escape from a planet tearing apart. Will they make it in time? And who gets left behind to experience the last moments of beauty and chaos on Earth? Nominated for a Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1987 and for Hugo and Locus Awards in 1988, THE FORGE OF GOD is an engrossing read, breathtaking in its scope and in its detail.
