Fiction, Science fiction

A best-selling science-fiction novel, first published in 1986, by a Pulitzer Prize-winner. In December 1999 a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who - or what - is out there

At first it seemed impossible - a radio signal that came not from Earth but from far beyond the nearest stars. But then the signal was translated, and what had been impossible became terrifying.

For the signal contains the information to build a Machine that can travel to the stars. A Machine that can take a human to meet those that sent the message.

They are eager to meet us: they have been watching and waiting for a long time.

And now they will judge.
