Overview

Into a dying star!

Beneath the roiling surface of Betelgeuse, scientists anxiously await the one man essential to the success of Starmuse, the greatest engineering project in human history. But on Kantano's World, Willard Ruskin battles invisible agents for control of his life, his physical form, and even his memories. Drawn into a conflict from which not even death will free him, Ruskin must find a way to reach Betelgeuse before his enemies sabotage Starmuse--and humanity's future among the stars. A harrowing journey from inside the human cell... to the mind of a dying star.

A stunning blend of hard science fiction with moving characterization, both human and otherwise. Introduces the robot Jeaves, familiar to readers of The Chaos Chronicles. From the Nebula-nominated author of Eternity's End.

Original print publication by Bantam Spectra. A Locus bestseller.

DRM-free ebook edition.

"Starts with a bang and keeps getting better. Carver handles not one, but two hot topics, and presents both vividly." --David Brin, author of Existence and Startide Rising

"Running from the micro to the macro and back again, redefining sentience, space-time, and perhaps humanity along the way, From a Changeling Star is a fast-paced puzzler, rich in invention, and Jeffrey A. Carver's most ambitious book to date." --Roger Zelazny

"As audacious and imaginative as the best of John Varley, with characters as memorable as those of Sturgeon or Zelazny, and with one of the most powerful endings in science fiction, this book will both hold and reward your attention." --Spider Robinson, author of The Stardance Trilogy and Variable Star

Editorial Reviews

Analog - Tom Easton
"Carver does an excellent job of tickling your sense of wonder, and in the end he leaves you both satisfied and craving another serving of his considerable talent."

This is a very confusing book. If you want action this is not for you. If you like 2001 space oddesy you might care for this.
