What happens when the Earth is invaded, not by 'little green men' but by an invading ecology possibly a million years older than ours?

This is the first book of a trilogy (well, it started out that way, Gerrold (also the author of the Star trek episode, 'The Trouble with Tribbles') has since extended it to last 'until it's done') that takes not just that question, but also what happens to us in the interim to conclusions that are pretty interesting, both from a science fiction perspective, but psychological as well.

Published in 1985, some of the characterisations are a little dated now, but considering that I just finished my...eighth or ninth re-read of the series, I think it has more than stood the test of time.

I just wish he'd hurry up and get the next book out.
