Aliens kidnap Manhattan; read all about it. Manhattan is taken away and placed under a huge clear dome, through which the trapped residents can see dozens of similarly trapped alien cities.

First published in 1993. Very much in the same spirit and scope as the 1996 film Independence Day. Echoed in a small way by the 1996 Star Trek: Voyager episode "Displaced." Science Fiction Book Club selection. Reached the preliminary Nebula Award ballot. On the Science Fiction Chronicle best of year list. Rockies Award winner. HOMer Award nominee. Hugo Award Honorable Mention. Seiun Award nominee (Japan). La Tour Eiffel nominee (France).


"Some ideas are just too good to pass up... the pleasure is in the nonstop action and the problem the characters must solve." -- New York Review of Science Fiction.

"Considerable ingenuity...Think of it as a visually spectacular movie...and a really outstanding, imaginative, and professional production staff and special effects crew working to bring off the big set--pieces and guarantee the thrills."--Locus

"How can you possibly resist?... Superscience SF in the classic vein, fast--moving, heroic...loaded with sensawunda. You'll love it."--Analog
