Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A meteorite falls to Earth, exploding high in the atmosphere and wreaking havoc on the ground. An amateur rock hunter discovers a piece of the interstellar visitor and cashes in on the fund, only to learn that it is not a meteorite at all... To think that there are no other sentient beings in the universe borders on vanity. To think that other sentient beings would be any less prone to violence and war than are we, borders on naivety. Collateral damage is a reality with any conflict. What if there is undelivered ordinance... Stray bullets... From distant, cosmic conflicts floating through space like wandering asteroids or long-period comets? What if bystander Earth was the victim of one of these... Errant shots?
