Publisher Description

A team of space archaeologists makes an astonishing discovery about an ancient alien race in this science fiction tale from “a master of his craft” (Los Angeles Times).
Graduate student Tom Rice is thrilled to embark on his first deep-space archeological expedition. He is part of a team from Earth, venturing out in search of artifacts from a civilization that ruled the universe many millennia ago. Called the High Ones, the members of this long-gone society left tantalizing clues about their history and culture scattered throughout space. One such clue, a “message cube” containing footage of the ancient ones, is more interesting than all of the others combined. It seems to indicate that the High Ones aren’t extinct after all—and just like that, Tom Rice’s archeological mission has become an intergalactic manhunt, one filled with ever-increasing danger that will send the explorers hurtling headlong into the greatest adventure—and peril—of their lives. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert Silverberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Docsoff ,

Excellent “classic” space travel Sci Fi.

This an interesting and enjoyable classic sci fi book, about space archeologists searching for an ancient lost species of sentinel beings! Interesting and enjoyable. Whoever wrote the criticism about sexism and racism clearly did not read the book! There are members of different species on the trip, and the discussion of their different traits could be interpreted as racism only by someone hypersensitive to human races. And OMG, a male protagonist finds a female shipmate attractive and hard to figure out!

Relatively short book. Read and enjoy this classic and see for yourself how so much contemporary science fiction has become so lame in comparison.

(Too) early silverberg

One of my favorite classic writers but this has not aged well

Not A Good Memory of Silverberg

This an early work, sadly filled with racial and gender discrimination to the brim. Distasteful to read.
