In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry
Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford
(Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once
again as a human expedition to another star system is
jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense
artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure
half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent to
many millions of Earthsâ€¦and itâ€™s on a direct path heading
for the same system as the human ship.
A landing party is sent to investigate the Bowl, but when
the explorers are separatedâ€”one group captured by the
gigantic structureâ€™s alien inhabitants, the other pursued
across its strange and dangerous landscapeâ€”the mystery of
the Bowlâ€™s origins and purpose propel the human voyagers
toward discoveries that will transform their understanding
of their place in the universe.
