DID GOD CREATE THE UNIVERSE?
THE ALIENS THINK THEY CAN PROVE IT!
CALCULATING GOD is the new near-future SF thriller
from Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer, "the dean of
Canadian Science Fiction" (The Ottawa Citizen).
An alien shuttle lands outside Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum. A
six-legged being emerges, who says, in perfect English, "Take me
to a paleontologist."
It seems that Earth, and the alien's home planet, and the home
planet of another alien species traveling on the alien
mothership, all experienced the same five cataclysmic events at
the same times in their prehistory (one was the asteroid impact
that on Earth wiped out the dinosaurs). Both alien races believe
this proves the existence of God: God has obviously been playing
with the evolution of life on each of these planets.
From this provocative launch point, Sawyer tells a fast-paced,
and morally and intellectually challenging, SF story that just
grows larger and larger in scope.
And when a supernova explodes out in the galaxy but close enough
to wipe out life on all three homeworlds, the big question is:
Will God intervene or is this the sixth cataclysm?
CALCULATING GOD is SF on the grand scale.
ROBERT J. SAWYER, author of eleven previous novels,
six-time Hugo Award finalist, and past president of the Science
Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, lives just north of
