THING ITSELF


THING ITSELF

ADAM ROBERTS    Book Number: 90439    Product format: Paperback

A taut and claustrophobic tale that echoes John Carpenter's The Thing, Adam Roberts turns his attention to answering the Fermi Paradox. Two men wile away the days in an Antarctic research station. Tensions between them build as they argue over a love letter one of them has received. One is practical and open, the other surly, superior and obsessed with reading one book - by the philosopher Kant. As a storm brews and they lose contact with the outside world, they debate Kant, reality and the emptiness of the universe. They come to hate each other, and they learn that they are not alone. Robert's brings his own unique literary take to science fiction's greatest question - are we alone in the Universe? 372pp, paperback.
