Product Description

They arrived in the sky over Earth one fine April day in their ships the color of gold. Seventy-seven ships ranging around the circumference of the globe, ships that seemed to chase the rising sun. 

In their wake, the golden ships left a wave of devastation, destruction, and (at least for a time) death. Among the cities, towns, and villages annihilated: San Francisco; Rome; Joplin Missouri; Dar-es-Salaam; Minsk and Kiev; Padua; Paterson NJ; Quebec and Geneva; St. Louis and St. Petersburg (Florida); Venice in California and Venice in Italy; Salt Lake City and Mecca; Springfield Mass and Springfield VA; Benares, Mecca, Kyoto, and Austin Texas; Mukilteo, Washington; Pittsburgh PA and Pittsburgh CA; seventeen obscure villages along the upper Yangtze; and three of the five metropolitan boroughs of greater New York City.... 

"Cosmic Fusion" was originally written between January 1973 and September 1982, a mammoth 300,000-word epic novel of "science fiction, sex, and death." Unpublished due to an editorial change at the original publishing company, Eklund has now revised it for its first publication. As he writes in his introduction: "'Cosmic Fusion' was intended to be the book that broke me out of [science fiction's midlist]. It was the Big Ambitious Novel I was going to write because I wanted to write it..." So here it is, a vintage tale written by Gordon Eklund at the peak of his power as a writer, never before seen...until today!

"Few occasions give more pleasure to a reader than witnessing the unexpected return to print of a long-silent author who once had a rewarding, admirable career. This time around, the satisfaction derives from the appearance of Cosmic Fusion, by Gordon Eklund." -- Paul Di Filippo, Locus Magazine
