Aliens kidnap Manhattan.
Vaguely reminiscent of the 1996 film INDEPENDENCE DAY, though first published in 1993. High-tech story of how the residents of Manhattan react when the island is sliced loosed from the Earth and placed aboard an enormous alien ship amidst a collection of alien cities. In development as a major feature film since it was first published. A Hugo Award honorable mention.
