   schema:description ""TWO EPIC NOVELS BY A NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR TOGETHER IN ONE VOLUME: Cradle of Saturn and The Legend That Was Earth. Earth is in danger from cosmic catastrophe and alien overlords. Two classic novels from a best-selling master of SF. Cradle of Saturn. Discoveries made by colonists on the moons of Saturn show that the Solar System has undergone repeated cataclysms and the last was only a few thousand years. This flies in the face of accepted scientific dogma, and is dismissed by Earth's authorities--until the planet Jupiter suddenly emits a white-hot Earth-sized protoplanet that hurtles sunward on a collision course with Earth. The Legend That Was Earth The alien Hyadeans have showered high-tech gifts on the population of Earth and are offering to make a paradise of the planet. But when wealthy socialite Roland Cade discovers the dark underbelly of the alien presence, and learns that his ex-wife is one of the so-called terrorists who are fighting against the alien takeover, he's forced to choose sides. Soon, he's caught up in a terrifying conflict that threatens the very existence of the Earth. About Cradle of Saturn: "Hogan's clearly explained scientific hypotheses presents intriguing questions, and his characters are real and likable. the suspenseful plot will keep readers strapped in for this ride."--Publishers Weekly. "There's no denying [Hogan's] ability to tell a story. The reader who felt that films such as Deep Impact, Armageddon and When Worlds Collide were for wimps might want to jump on this one." --Starlog About The Legend That Was Earth: "Hard SF readers [will] appreciate Hogan's energetic narrative, engaging characters and stirkingly real presentation of a plausible immediate future." --Publishers Weekly ". on the cutting edge of technology. Hogan's talent carries the reader from peak to peak in the story." --Booklist ". fascinating notions and nonstop plot twists in a taut, gripping narrative." --Kirkus Reviews "--"@en ;
