Fleeing a carnivorous race of alien monsters, the entire surviving human population from 500 years in the future escapes into the present in this thrilling science fiction adventure from one of the golden age greats.
Our human descendants from five centuries in the future are coming to visit - all one billion of them - arriving via tunnels through time. Even though the present is merely a stopover and their ultimate destination is the age of the dinosaurs, their arrival has caused a worldwide uproar. Some folks want them gone, and some want to go with them as governments and powerful corporations alike scheme to get their hands on remarkable, potentially profitable time-travel technology. There is a dark and terrifying reason, however, for the visitors' abrupt arrival.
Our frightened descendants are seeking sanctuary from carnivorous aliens who have descended upon the future Earth, a threat that could mean the rapid destruction of the entire human race. And the end could come sooner than anyone imagined, for some of the intelligent, rapidly breeding extraterrestrial monsters who have been devouring our children's children may well have followed their prey back to the now.
A speculative fiction master who stands alongside Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein in the pantheon of golden age science fiction gods, multiple Hugo and Nebula Award winner Clifford D. Simak delivers an alien invasion tale that is at once wildly imaginative, seriously thought provoking, and just plain fun.
About the Author:
Clifford Donald Simak (* August 3, 1904 in Milville, Wisconsin, USA / † April 25, 1988 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) was a journalist and a science fiction writer. Simak was considered as one of the “Grandmasters” of science fiction and he was honoured several times with awards for his contribution to science fiction literature.
Clifford D. Simak wrote continuously science fiction and fantasy for over 55 years (only few other writers worked as long as he did). He never was such a prolific writer like Isak Asimov or Robert Silverberg. Anyhow he managed to publish in these 55 years 28 novels and more than 120 short stories in the genres science fiction and fantasy – and that avocational until his retirement in 1976. He earned his living as a reporter and editor of big newspapers in the American middle west.
There was a time when Simak was considered as one of the most valued SF-writers and there was hardly any standard literature on the history of science fiction which has not dedicate him a separate paragraph or even an own chapter even though he was never in fashion. He stood mostly in the shadow of his more famous colleagues
