A young scientist creates a creature who threatens to become more human than he is.
BY A. GARLAND
The sun is dying. The crew of humanity’s last hope of saving it has to face the crushing emptiness of space, their own isolation, and the weight of their task.
"When twenty thousand people sat in the clear sunshine of an Athenian hillside and watched through the course of an entire day, or of several days, a play in which men struggled against the Gods, they did not go primarily to be entertained. They did not loll in their seats and say, ‘Give me a pick-me-up.’ They said ‘Clarify the experiences I see all about me, celebrate life, death, and love. Fill me with terror and pity. Purge me.’”
