Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven ( Ringworld ) and Gregory Benford ( Timescape ), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths. and it's on a direct path heading for the same system as the human ship. A landing party is sent to investigate the Bowl, but when the explorers are separated-one group captured by the gigantic structure's alien inhabitants, the other pursued across its strange and dangerous landscape-the mystery of the Bowl's origins and purpose propel the human voyagers toward discoveries that will transform their understanding of their place in the universe.
