Review:

At 89 years of age, the "Dean of Modern Science Fiction" must know something the rest of us don't, because he's still writing wonderful books. This time Jack Williamson turns his talents to Project Starseed, humanity's ambitious attempt to populate the universe by sending out 99 "wavecraft," faster-than-light ships that provide a one-way ride to the first star they encounter . . . sometimes. Luck is with the crew of ship 99, for their craft comes out of its waveform as planned, but the star they've found is dead, and the planet below them has been lifeless for 1 billion years. Until now.
