In Our Hands, the Stars by Harry Harrison


"An outstanding example of SF in a contemporary setting. Characterisation is good; background is excellent; dénouement is satisfying. This book will be enjoyed by a lot of people who are allergic to the shoddy juvenilia often distinguished as SF"
-Sunday Times

In this powerful new novel of the near future, Harry Harrison deals with the dangers of advances in science - not in the shape of a virus from space, but in the deadly drives and passions of the human race. A top scientist 'defects' to neutral Denmark to protect his discovery - the key to safe, easy, economical space travel, which is also a potential weapon of mass destruction, and Denmark becomes the centre of a gigantic international squeeze play of espionage, blackmail and menace, leading to a bitterly ironic conclusion.
