[Calculating God

DID GOD CREATE THE UNIVERSE?
THE ALIENS THINK THEY CAN PROVE IT!

CALCULATING GOD is the new near-future SF thriller from Nebula Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer, "the dean of Canadian Science Fiction" (The Ottawa Citizen).

An alien shuttle lands outside Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum. A six-legged being emerges, who says, in perfect English, "Take me to a paleontologist."

It seems that Earth, and the alien's home planet, and the home planet of another alien species traveling on the alien mothership, all experienced the same five cataclysmic events at the same times in their prehistory (one was the asteroid impact that on Earth wiped out the dinosaurs). Both alien races believe this proves the existence of God: God has obviously been playing with the evolution of life on each of these planets.

From this provocative launch point, Sawyer tells a fast-paced, and morally and intellectually challenging, SF story that just grows larger and larger in scope.

And when a supernova explodes out in the galaxy but close enough to wipe out life on all three homeworlds, the big question is: Will God intervene  or is this the sixth cataclysm? CALCULATING GOD is SF on the grand scale.


ROBERT J. SAWYER, author of eleven previous novels, six-time Hugo Award finalist, and past president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, lives just north of Toronto.
