TWO EPIC SCIENCE FICTION NOVELS BY A NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR TOGETHER IN ONE VOLUME: New York Times bestseller Endgame Enigma and Promethius Award winner Voyage from Yesteryear.
New York Times bestseller. In the near future, Russia has built Valentina Tereshkova, a space station a mile in diameter, a shining city in space.

Voyage from Yesteryear:
Prometheus Award-winning novel. Late in our century, as nuclear war loomed, Americans sent a colonization spaceship manned by robots to an Earthlike planet in the Alpha Centauri system.

Generations later, Earth has rebuilt after the war, unfortunately with authoritarian governments which now can send manned starships with more colonists to the new worlds. They'll show their distant relatives "help." But the robots educated their pupils much too well--the colonists are actually serious about all that life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the inalienable rights of the individual stuff...

James P. Hogan was a science fiction writer in the grand tradition, combining informed and accurate speculation from the cutting edge of science and technology with suspenseful story-telling and living, breathing characters. Born in London in 1941, he worked as digital system engineer and sales executive for several major computer firms before turning to writing full-time in 1979. His first novel, Inherit the Stars, was greeted by Isaac Asimov with the rave, "Pure science fiction . . . Arthur Clarke, move over!" and his subsequent work quickly consolidated his reputation as a major SF author. He wrote over thirty novels, nonfiction works, and mixed collections, including the New York Times bestsellers The Proteus Operation and Endgame Enigma and the Prometheus Award Winning novels Voyage from Yesteryear and The Multiplex Man. He lived in the U.S.A. for twenty years in the USA, then moved to the west coast of Ireland, where he died in 2010.
