When aliens invade, a generations-long struggle begins against an impenetrable enemy in this sci-fi epic from the Hugo and Nebula Awardâ€“winning author.
The Entities have arrived on Earth, fifteen feet tall with impenetrable defenses and inscrutable motives. As conquerors, they have no demands, no explanations, simply harsh consequences should they be challenged. Releasing a plague and plunging the world into a new Dark Age, the Entities seem unbeatable. But, one family at leastâ€”the Carmichael clan led by Colonel Anson Carmichaelâ€”will never give up the resistance.
THE ALIEN YEARS is an epic story told over multiple generations by master of thoughtful science fiction Robert Silverberg. Can ideas of freedom survive in the face of an overwhelmingly powerful enemy? â€śA remarkable study of human endurance and patience that belongs in most SF collections.â€ť â€”The Library Journal
â€śSobering and frighteningâ€¦. Silverbergâ€™s rich characters, his dead-on-target vision of modern society, his mastery at building tensionâ€”all are in evidence in this notable outing from one of the very best.â€ť â€”Publishers Weekly
