David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749—1832)
Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race. But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind? A very good paperback, 1st edition paperback, with creased spine, soiled edges, light tanning of pages,Ben Bova's extraordinary 'Moonbase Saga' continues with Moonwar following Moonrise -- a breathtaking near-future adventure rich in character and incident.
Seven years after the indomitable Doug Stavenger has realized his cherished dream of establishing a colony on the inhospitable lunar surface, Moonbase is a thriving community, a marvel of scientific achievement created and supported by nanotechnology: virus-sized machines that can build, cure, and destroy. But nanotechnology has been declared illegal by the home planet's leaders, and a powerful despot is determined to lay claim to Stavenger's peaceful city--or obliterate it, if necessary.
The people of Moonbase, a colony with no arms or military, must now defend themselves from earthborn aggression with the only weapon at their disposal: the astonishing technology that sustains their endangered home. An odyssey of discovery, from a shattered society through the solar system with a handful of men and women who ride a cold, hurtling ball of ice to the shaky promise of a distant, unknowable future.
