SF novel: sequel to THE FORGE OF GOD (1987). THIS COPY INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR IN YEAR OF PUBLICATION/''For David! All best wishes - Greg Bear Birmingham '92''.
''The Forge of God (1987) tackles the end of the worldD by confronting near-future humanity with a sequence of alien intrusions, one of which proves utterly and implacably fatal to the existence of the planet. The bulldog inexorability with which the author presents this scenario is darkly exhilarating, and seemed at the time a welcome prophylactic to the assumption embedded in most hard-sf novels that catastrophes, no matter how grave, will be sidestepped by the fit: a sequel, however, ANVIL OF STARS (1992 UK), somewhat softens the blow of the first volume by carrying a few human survivors in an alien ship on a revenge mission directed against the apparent makers of the autonomous weapons which destroyed Earth'' (John Clute/The Encyclopedia of SF).
