About the Author:
[Read by Gabrielle de Cuir, P.J. Ochlan, Stefan Rudnicki]
Gregory Benford and David Brin come together in this bold collaboration about our near human future in space.
Prescient and scientifically accurate, Heart of the Comet is known as one of the great hard SF novels of the 1980s. First published in 1986, it tells the story of an ambitious manned mission to visit Halley's Comet, alter its orbit, and mine it for resources. But all too soon, native cells -- that might once have brought life to Earth -- begin colonizing the colonists. As factions battle over the comet's future -- and that of Earth -- only love, courage, and ingenuity can avert disaster and spark a new human destiny.
Gregory Benford is a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Irvine. A Woodrow Wilson Fellow and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, he received the Lord Prize for contributions to science in 1995 and the Asimov Memorial Award for popularizing science in 2007. He has written numerous works of science fiction, receiving a Nebula Award and a John W. Campbell Memorial Award for his novel Timescape.
David Brin is a scientist, speaker, technical consultant, and winner of the Freedom of Speech Award. His novels - including Earth, The Postman, Startide Rising, and Kiln People - have been New York Times bestsellers, winning multiple Hugo, Nebula, and other awards. He lives near San Diego, California.
