"Srong plot and plenty of action"
In one catastrophic hit, four billion years of evolution
and growth are erased. A century has passed since the
asteroid crashed into earth eradicating just about every
living creature on the planet. The only human survivors
are clones from long dead parents who live in Tycho
Station, a dome with tunnels on the moon.
Each subsequent lunar generation understands the prime goal
is to return to the homeland by TERRAFORMING EARTH. Over
the millenniums, several efforts to return have failed
leaving more dead people behind. Now thousands of years
later, another attempt is to begin. Is the cycle of
failure going to finally be broken and if yes, what happens
to the moon base that has been home seemingly forever?
TERRAFORMING EARTH is an exciting, action-packed, thought
provoking science fiction thriller. The great Jack
Williamson focuses on the aftermath of a pandemic
destruction of all sentient beings. The story line leaps
through the millenniums at light speed yet never loses
focus as to what the author wants to say about humanity,
its future, and the impact of science on evolution. The
great grandmaster gets greater as Mr. Williamson, who has
been writing since the parents of the boomers were
children, provides another novel for the ages.
