“Brillant…A first-class adventure.”  Sacramento Bee
“Provocative and often very funny.”  Detroit Free Press
“[Sagan’s] informed and dramatically enacted speculations into the mysteries of the universe, taken to the point where science and religion touch, make his story an exciting intellectual adventure and science fiction of a high order.”  Publishers Weekly
