Welcome to a future where human beings and dolphins are in contact with two other sentient races from other planets, connected by a network of singularities created by some other long-gone race. When stars begin coming through the singularities, our heroes figure out they may be coming from the future, and that mystery combined with the opportunistic attack by one of the more violent races sets off a race against time to save a brand new life form and, you know, also all of humanity.This is pretty great science fiction, from an author who consistently provides great ideas in his novels. Unfortunately the characterization of the protagonist and his cringeworthy perception of his relationship to his wife and a young girl who works for him left me a little bit uncomfortable, but at least there was an attempt to make the people more real, and not stereotypes or caricatures. The resolution is satisfying and it's almost enough to make a reader sad that Sawyer later decided to concentrate on more modern sci fi.

Rob Sawyer's gedanken experiments on dark matter, wormholes, black holes, time travel, etc. are as good as those of any theoretical physicist alive today. And he writes the best science fiction there is today, to explain things we may never truly understand, but shall forever enjoy thinking about.
