Book Description Hamlyn, 1979. Paperback. Condition: Good. Synopsis:- This is a vintage edition and will be subject to the effects of aging >>"If you haven`t read Galouye, Project Barrier is a fine place to start." - Mike ResnickHere is a unique collection from a distinctive author whose works include such classic titles as Dark Universe and Similacron-3. Project Barrier showcases five loosely-connected stories, never before published in the U.S.In "Rub-a-Dub" Galouye helps us explore what it is that makes us human, in a future were advanced technologies can copy a person`s mental imprint - or is it their soul? - into someone else`s body. And in "Shuffle Board," we leap forward into a potential future that explores the damage the human race has caused to Earth, and to our very own genome itself. For what is it that makes us who we are? Our mind, or what it is housed in? Galouye takes this concept one step further when he places humanity on new planets in "Recovery Area," and Reign of the "Teletpuppets," to show us how Man can (re)discover himself, when experiencing a first contact scenario. Do we rise to the occasion, as a race, or show our uglier side as a result of miscommunication and ignorance? How better to answer that question, then to read what happens in the collection`s title piece, "Project Barrier," where Galouye dazzles the reader with the most tantalizing "what if" in the entire book. The novelette is a fascinating study of a possible evolutionary decision we could make, as we expand our spiritual and galactic horizons. Galouye is going to mess with your mind, and make you think, as you consider the moral implications this collection offers forth. . Enjoy the journey. It`s going to be one hell of a bumpy ride!"Project Barrier collects five powerful novelettes and novellas, and serves to further cement his reputation in the annals of science fiction`s best practitioners." - Mike Resnick-> the publiser of this PAPERBACK book is Hamlyn in 1979 it has 238 pages booksalvation have grade it as Good and it will be shipped from our UK warehouse shipping is Free for UK buyers and at a reasonable charge for buyer outside the UK. book.
