Army engineer Eduardo Torres is caught up in the world?s raging oil wars when he stumbles onto the plans for a quantum-energy battery. This remarkable device could slow civilization?s inevitable descent into environmental disaster, but Torres has other plans. Forming a private army, he uses the device to revive an abandoned space colonization effort in an ambitious campaign to lead humanity to a new life in a distant solar system.
The massive endeavor faces many challenges before the fleet finally embarks for the Holzstein System many light-years away. But even as the feuding colonists struggle to carve out homes on alien worlds, they discover that they have not left their old conflicts and inner demons behind.
Nor are they alone on this new frontier. Awaiting them are inhuman beings who strike without warning or explanation--and who may spell the end of humanity?s last hope.
Epic in scope, yet filled with searing human drama and emotion, A Grey Moon Over China is a monumental science fiction saga by an amazing new talent. Its original publication by Black Heron Press was named one of the ?Best Books of 2006" by Kirkus Reviews.
Dall'editore: There is something primal in this book in its assumption of brutality in the world, and in the belief that there is something larger than ourselves, even if we have created it. In "A Grey Moon Over China" we carry our longing, but also our rage, to the stars. We destroy those we love, yet love, honestly and tenderly, again. Success comes to us through inadvertence as much as by plan, and we extol the ambition that seeks it. We lust for control of the universe, and sacrifice our souls to acquire it. Yet it is only by accepting our own nature, and responsibility for where it has led us, that we may regain our souls. All of these themes are in this fine book, and we commend its author for unflinchingly exploring them.
