Autor Arthur C. Clarke
en Limba Engleză Paperback – oct 1994
In the year 2110 technology has cured  most of our worries. But even as humankind enters  a new golden age, an amateur astronomer points  his telescope at just the right corner of the night  sky and sees disaster hurtling toward Earth: a  chunk of rock that could annihilate civilization.  While a few fanatics welcome the apocalyptic  destruction as a sign from God, the greatest  scientific minds of Earth desperately search for a way to  avoid the inevitable. On board the starship  Goliath Captain Robert Singh and his crew must race  against time to redirect the meteor form its deadly  collision course. Suddenly they find themselves  on the most important mission in human history--a  mission whose success may require the ultimate  sacrifice.

"Clarke is still at the top of his  game."--The Detroit News.  

"As good as any anything he's written.  . .for a hard-science-fiction treat, I suspect  The Hammer Of God won't be  topped."--Star Tribune, Minneapolis.  

"Classic Clarke. . .a good  story."--The Denver Post.

"Entertaining. . .[Clark] handles both ideas  and characters with deftness and wit; in short,  the outstanding living science fiction writers is romping."--Chicago  Sun-Times.


Clarke's first major solo novel in years--a national bestseller--tells the compelling story of the race to protect Earth from imminent destruction. An asteroid is on a collision course with Earth, and while a starship tries to redirect it, religious fanatics engage in sabotage to ensure that their predicted Apocalypse will come.
