THE GREAT SYMMETRY
By: James R. Wells
Exoarchaeologist Evan McElroy has made a discovery about a long-extinct alien race. But his sponsors realize they can make huge gains if the new findings are kept completely secret. Step one of their plan is to kill the entire research team – starting with Evan.
As Evan flees for his life, his trajectory awakens a long-buried struggle. The Infoterrorists, who believe all ideas are screaming to be free, have waited years for the right moment to take on the seven great families that control all of civilization. This could be their opportunity. Or, it could be time for millions to die.
One for fans of Niven, Dan Simmons and all those master world-building SF writers. ‘The Great Symmetry’ is hard SF with heart by the great-grandson of the legendary H.G. Wells.
Is he as good a writer as his famous great grandfather? Read it and make up your own mind. You won’t be disappointed.
