Overview

Having experienced a series of scientific breakthroughs, Earth in the 2030s is finally coming to grips with its environmental crisis. Nowhere is the new techno-environmental sensibility more pronounced than Northern California, where Silicon Valley has been transformed into a densely populated, pedestrian-oriented city flanked by a radically restored wilderness. But are the denizens of this sophisticated society ready for the metaphysical shock generated by the discovery of another world, one similar to pre-industrial Earth yet in odd ways more highly advanced? How will they contend with a planet whose inhabitants they can reach out across time-space to see and hear, but who remain unaware of their existence? A science fiction adventure with elements of romance, Terranova is equally a metaphysical novel. Its overriding question is: What would it mean for our conception of the cosmos if we were to find another planet much like Earth?
