Synopsis: On a neutron star, the cheela, a form of intelligent life whose hour equals more than one hundred human years, struggle to progress from the beginnings of agriculture to the discovery of science

From the Publisher: I joined Random House in 1995 as General Manager for the House of Collectibles imprint. The offices for House of Collectibles are right next door to Del Rey and, since I have a passion for science fiction, I moseyed over and asked Veronica Chapman, a Del Rey editor, for a book recommendation. She asked if I was looking for a fantasy book or a hard science fiction book. I indicated the later and without hesitation she recommended Dragon's Egg.

Wow! What a truly great book! It is so brimming with new ideas and new perspectives that it literally expands your mind. It opens your eyes to new possibilities. Every few pages draw another exclaimation of "Wow!"

I wish I could say, "I liked the book so much, I bought the company." But next best thing did happen: I became General Manager of Del Rey. (Please note that your results from reading this book may vary.) Thank you, Veronica, for this fantastic recommendation which I whole-heartedly pass along to one and all.
                                                --Tim Kochuba, General Manager
