The cosmic serpent : a catastrophist view of earth history by Victor Clube( Book )
7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 523 libraries worldwide
The Cosmic Serpent was a giant comet that terrorized mankind in prehistoric times. As a fiery dragon and hurler of thunderbolts, it wrought destruction and disaster upon the Earth. In the last three thousand years, however, these stupendous facts have been all but erased from human memory; not on purpose but simply because we have never arrived at a proper understanding of comets. Now, in this scholarly and entertaining enquiry, the authors bring to bear a battery of modern knowledge gathered by radio-telescopes, satellites, moonshots and the like; and step by step, they unveil for us a remarkable new vision of man's dramatic past and hazardous future

Comets and the origin of life by Janaki Wickramasinghe( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 170 libraries worldwide
"The idea that comets may be connected with the origin of life on Earth was considered heresy a few decades ago, with scientists shying away from this possibility as if from a medieval superstition. However the case that comets may have contributed at least the complex organic building blocks of life has become very strong, and mechanisms have now been identified whereby comets may incubate and transfer microbial life from one cosmic habitat to another in the Galaxy. The latter process cometary panspermia was pioneered by the late Sir Fred Hoyle and one of the present authors in the early 1980's. A theory that was once controversial is slowly gaining scientific respectability and support. The recent surge of interest in astrobiology has led to a spate of books in astrobiology - combining astronomy and biology - but in most of these, cometary panspermia is dealt with only cursorily. The present book sets out the case for cometary panspermia in a cogent way, combining evidence from space science, celestial mechanics, geology and microbiology. It should be an essential part of any university course on astrobiology, and also serve as a reference textbook for researchers in the field."--Page 4 of cover
