Synopsis: Many years ago humans made a discovery in the far reaches of the solar system - a huge statue of an alien creature, with a description that defied all efforts of translation. But except for a set of footprints on Jupiter's moon, there is no trace of the race that has left it behind.

Review: The logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. Stephen King
