About this title

Synopsis:

A reflective statue is found at the bottom of one of Earth's oceans, having lain there for 1.5 billion years. Since humans have recently developed a time-slowing field and found that one such field cannot function within another, it is suspected that the "Sea Statue" is actually a space traveler within one of these time fields. Larry Greenberg, a telepath, agrees to participate in an experiment: a time-slowing field is generated around both Greenberg and the statue, shutting off the stasis field and revealing Kzanol. Kzanol is a living Thrint, a member of a telepathic race that once ruled the galaxy through mind control.

About the Author:

Larry Niven is one of the best-known names in science fiction. He is the Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of many classics in the genre, including most recently DESTINY'S ROAD and RAINBOW MARS.
