Publisher Description

Three science fiction novels from the Nebula Award–nominated author of The Hustler and The Color of Money.

The Man Who Fell to Earth
After his home planet is devastated by war, an alien disguised as a human comes to Earth on a mission to save his people. He begins amassing wealth needed to build a spacecraft to bring his people to join him, but his plans get sidelined when he descends into alcoholism.

Mockingbird
On a post-apocalyptic Earth where humanity has suffered devastating losses, people are drugged from childhood on, there is no art, and reading is illegal. A suicidal machine runs the world, while the passion between two humans provides the only hope for humankind.

The Steps of the Sun
When the world’s richest man travels to the stars in search of the mineral wealth America needs to get it out of an energy crisis, he finds more than he bargains for—and gets more than he ever believed was possible . . .

“Among the finest science fiction novels . . . . Just beneath the surface it might be read as a parable of the Fifties and of the Cold War. Beneath that as an evocation of existential loneliness, a Christian fable, a parable of the artist. Above all, perhaps, as the wisest, truest representation of alcoholism ever written.” —James Sallis, Fantasy & Science Fiction on The Man Who Fell to Earth

“A moral tale that has elements of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New WorldSuperman, and Star Wars” —Los Angeles Times Book Review on Mockingbird

“Engaging and effortlessly readable.” —Publishers Weekly on The Steps of the Sun
