SCIENCE FICTION EDGED IN DARKNESS BY CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AUTHOR, EDWARD M. LERNER
On the Moon’s far side, shielded from Earth’s radio cacophony, Americans are building a radio-astronomy observatory. Russians sift the dust of a lunar “sea” for helium-3 to run future fusion reactors. Commercial robots, remotely operated from Earth, roam the Moon’s near side in a hunt for mineral wealth. Why chase distant asteroids for precious metals? Onetime asteroids must lie close beneath the much-bombarded lunar surface.
Then a prospecting robot encounters a desiccated, space-suited figure. An alien figure…
Americans from the lunar observatory investigate. Near the original find, underground, they discover an alien installation. Lunar Russians, realizing that the Americans are up to something clandestine, send their own small team. Each group distrusts the other … even before the fatal “accidents” begin. By the time anyone suspects what ancient evil they have awakened, it may be too late — For everyone on earth, too.
“Here’s an author you definitely need to check out.”
“Irresistibly compelling. Edward M. Lerner has given us the ultimate archeological mystery.”
“Well plotted, scientifically accurate, a story plausible and exciting—hard sf at it’s best.”
Edward is a physicist and computer scientist (among other things). After thirty years in industry, working at every level from individual technical contributor to senior vice president, he now writes full-time. Mostly he writes science fiction and techno-thrillers, now and again throwing in a straight science or technology article.
