Among the Saturnian moons, farsighted individuals, working without help or permission from any government, have established a colony. Operating without the hidebound restrictions of bureaucratic Earth, the colony is a magnet, attracting the best and the brightest of the home world, and has been making important new discoveries. But one of their claims (that the solar system undergoes periodic cataclysms) flies in the face of reigning dogma, and is under attack by the scientific establishment. Then Jupiter emits a protoplanet as large as the Earth.
With its power and influence waning, the Soviet Union has launched a giant space station capable of housing 12,000 people. But is this off-world colony the peaceful Utopia experiment it's alleged to be? Or is it the last desperate weapon of a crumbling superpower bent on global domination?
A GIANTS novel by Hogan, virtual reality had led to alternate reality and alternate reality was taking over.
Brad Clifford's theory was just applied mathematics-but its implications were too hot for the frozen minds of his superiors. So they buried it--and him--under wraps of secrecy. Then Aubrey Philipsz, iconoclast and fellow genius, appeared on the scene to build the Genesis Machine Clifford's theory made possible. And all previous science and technology went into a tailspin. Suddenly, all weapons seemed useless before the previously unimagined power of the Genesis Machine. It could wreck a world or save it--and the men who ruled that world on a path of disaster now fought to gain control of this new force. But Clifford and Philipsz had another goal, another dream. They were reaching for the stars!
Long before the world of the Ganymeans blew apart millennia ago, the strange race of giants had already vanished. All that remained of them was a wrecked ship abandoned on a frozen moon of Jupiter. Now Earth's scientists are there, determined to ferret out the secret of the lost race. But when suddenly the Ganymeans return, they bring with them answers that will reveal the secret of our own as well.
Man wanted to meet his makers, but someone - or something - stood in the way. Book three of the Giants' novels.
Sequel to Code Of The Lifemaker.
The man on the moon was dead. They called him Charlie. He had big eyes, abundant body hair, and fairly long nostrils. His skeletal body was found clad in a bright red spacesuit, hidden in a rocky grave. They didn't know who he was, how he got there, or what had killed him. All they knew was that his corpse was fifty thousand years old -- and that meant this man had somehow lived long before he ever could have existed.
Scientists are Only Human, and Not Immune to Dogma. A New York Times Best-selling Writer Examines the Facts in the Most Profound Controversies in Modern Science. Galileo may have been forced to deny that the Earth moves around the Sun; but in the end, science triumphed. Nowadays science fearlessly pursues truth, shining the pure light of reason on the mysteries of the universe. Or does it? As best-selling author James P. Hogan demonstrates in this fact-filled and thoroughly documented study, science has its own roster of hidebound pronouncements which are Not to be Questioned. Among the dogma-laden subjects he examines are Darwinism, global warming, the big bang, problems with relativity, radon and radiation, holes in the ozone layer, the cause of AIDS, and the controversy over Velikovsky. Hogan explains the basics of each controversy with his clear, informative style, in a book that will be fascinating for anyone with an interest in the frontiers of modern science. This book also discusses Asbestos and why the Twin-Towers should have stood for hours, long enough for most to have escaped. He also takes up the CFC Controversy and the myths about DDT. False Science costs lives, especially in the third world.
Richard Jarrow, a mild and unassuming teacher, wakes up in a hotel room in a strange city with no memory. Everyone he knows treats him as a stranger.

Finding Ashling will be the key to Jarrow finding out what happened to himself.

In the early 21st century, terrorism, economic decay and war make the world a not so pleasant place to live.

Taya had always lived in the World, with her companion Kort. But she wondered why everything she could see beyond the window was so different from the things inside.
When Murdoch was summoned to his grandfather's isolated Scottish castle, he had no idea of the old man's latest discovery - nor where it would lead him. Sir Charles, a genius in far-out physics, had found a flaw in the law of conservation of energy; in any process an incredibly tiny increment of energy escaped - back through time! Using this 'tau' radiation he could send messages into the past. But Murdoch discovered records of messages he knew he had never sent! Were many futures possible? Could a message from Future X alter the past - and thus wipe out Future X? But who would be foolish enough to send a message that could eliminate his own existence. Then disaster struck. An advanced fusion reactor threatened to destroy all Earth. Grimly, Murdoch sat down to send back the words that would destroy everything he had learned to love.
By the mid-21st century, technology had become much too complicated for humans to handle--and the computer network that had grown up to keep civilization from tripping over its own shoelaces was also beginning to be overwhelmed. Something had to be done. As a solution, Raymond Dyer's project developed the first genuinely self-aware artificial intelligence--code name: Spartacus. But could Spartacus be trusted to obey its makers?
Nuclear war loomed on the horizon, so a 'colony' in the form of DNA information was sent to another planet where robots created children.
