The man on the moon was dead. They called him Charlie. He had big eyes, abundant body hair, and fairly long nostrils. His skeletal body was found clad in a bright red spacesuit, hidden in a rocky grave. They didn't know who he was, how he got there, or what had killed him. All they knew was that his corpse was fifty thousand years old -- and that meant this man had somehow lived long before he ever could have existed.

JAMES P. HOGAN (1941-2010) was a science fiction writer in the grand tradition, combining informed and accurate speculation from the cutting edge of science and technology with suspenseful storytelling and living, breathing characters. His first novel was greeted by Isaac Asimov with the rave, ''Pure science fiction . . . Arthur Clarke, move over!'' and his subsequent work quickly consolidated his reputation as a major SF author. His many novels include the New York Times bestsellers The Proteus Operation and Endgame Enigma, as well as the Prometheus Award winner The Multiplex Man.Review:
''Hard science fiction with a lovely vengeance but done so well that almost no scientific background is needed to understand and enjoy it . . . Highly recommended.'' --Analog
''Intellectual action portrayed as excitingly as any space war - a truly absorbing read and a reminder that learning is one of the greatest human adventures.'' --Publishers Weekly
