The first interstellar space ship returns from hyperspace to our solar system, but the crew aren't brought back to Earth, and the space agency is keeping very, very quiet. Meanwhile, people are spotting the ship's crew walking around various cities, and seeing giant monsters in the sky. An ace science reporter has to get to the bottom of it.

Three and a half stars (gotta have that half star), but intriguing and enjoyable enough to hover at the high end.

Ultimately the book is a first encounter type set-up, but far from an 'ordinary' one.

The late John Brunner was perhaps as well known for much of his career in the US as in the UK. A leftwing activist, with particular connections to the peace movement, much of his best and most mature fiction is involved in a complex analysis of social trends and where they will take us--novels like Stand on Zanzibar which deals with overpopulation, among other things, and The Sheep Look Up, which ...more
