Buzz Aldrin, one of manned space flight's pioneers, has helped create a stunning, possibly prophetic novel of the future of space exploration. A radio beacon from an unknown world leads an astronaut to disaster on the Moon -- and his son far beyond that as he searches for the key to the mystery of Tiber, a civilization who left artifacts in the solar system some 9,000 years ago, with sufficient impact on human affairs to explain some odd references in the Bible. The villains of the book are not the aliens, but the benighted politicians with the minds of accountants who won't fund the necessary scientific derring-do to save the world -- apparently an affliction which alien astronauts also have to bear.
You can read an exclusive interview with Buzz Aldrin written by Frank Braun.From the Inside Flap:
A magnificent tapestry of heroic triumphs and tragedies, ENCOUNTER WITH TIBER spans light years and millennia to prove that space is the next challenge of the human spirit, of our eternal need to journey beyond the highest mountain and beyond the farthest shore.
