In a newborn twenty-first century, tunnels through spacetime have connected our planet with hitherto unimagined alternate universes. After many years, the genius minds working at the SSC project have reached out into the vast cosmos to achieve their greatest dream: contact. But with whom. . .or what? And at what cost? For something has received their message--an ancient, hostile entity searching for knowledge and life to absorb and annihilate; and entity that has now locked onto a faint, persisting signal emanating from a distant, uncommonly fertile feeding ground. . .called Earth.

John Cramer is the author of the acclaimed hard-SF novel, Twistor, and writes a bi-monthly column for Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact magazine. He lives in Seattle, WA, where he is a professor of physics at the University of Washington, and travels regularly to Switzerland to work at the particle accelerator at CERN.From Kirkus Reviews:
Arriving too late for a full review, physicist-author Cramer's latest hard science fiction yarn (Twistor, 1989) begins in an alternate ``bubble'' universe where the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project didn't collapse through lack of funding in the 1990s. Instead, in 2004, the search for the elusive Higgs boson begins--but the operation of the SSC inadvertently sends a signal into another bubble universe, this inhabited by the malignant and utterly ruthless Hive, who colonize new universes by completely obliterating the competition. Fortunately, the benevolent Makers also receive the signal and send a message back alerting Earth to the danger. Cramer splendidly demonstrates just how fascinating and mind- boggling real science can be, and shows exactly how vulnerable basic research is to political whim. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
