Description
On the airwaves, all the talk is of the new blue planet &; pristine and habitable, like our own was 65 million years ago, before we took it to the edge of destruction. Off the air, Billie Crusoe and the renegade robo-sapian Spike are falling in love. Along with Captain Handsome and Pink, they&;re assigned to colonize the new blue planet. But when a technical maneuver intended to make it inhabitable backfires, Billie and Spike&;s flight to the future becomes a surprising return to the distant past &;- "Everything is imprinted forever with what it once was." What will happen when their story combines with the world&;s story? Will they &;- and we &;- ever find a safe landing place?Playful, passionate, polemical, and frequently very funny, The Stone Gods will change forever the stories we tell about the earth, about love, and about stories themselves.
