Riassunto: Dark Ararat is the fifth novel in an overarching masterpiece. It extends into interstellar space Brian Stableford's ambitious ongoing future history series begun in Inherit the Earth and continued in The Architects of Emortality, The Fountains of Youth, and The Cassandra Complex.
Hundreds of years in our future, humanity is expanding out into the galaxy in gigantic colony ships. Slower than light speed, the ships are filled with long-lived people who are, nevertheless, in suspended animation for all or much of the voyage. One ship has reached a promising world and begun a colony, but not everyone has yet been awakened.
Matthew Fleury is shocked to learn that he has been revived from suspended animation to replace a colleague who has been murdered.
Is the planet still inhabited by the alien race that left ancient ruins of great cities? And who killed the eminent scientist leading the investigation of the ruins? If the aliens survive, then the planet becomes off limits to humans, and the ship must find another planet to colonize. There are some colonists who would kill to leave. And some who would kill to stay.
Dal retro di copertina:
Praise for Brian Stableford:
"This is cerebral science fiction of a high order . . . with ample rewards for readers willing to stay the course."-- The New York Times on The Fountains of Youth
"The excellently drawn characters of Inherit the Earth dance through a plot that never gives them a chance to catch their breath."--David Drake
"A master at creating true science fiction enigmas--his characters are endearingly colorful and the mystery satisfyingly complex."? Starlog on The Architects of Emortality
"Tough, gritty, and ultimately hopeful, you can't do much better than Inherit the Earth."--David Brin
