The Man in the Maze

Special order direct from the distributor

With an introduction by Neil Gaiman: Once a hero, now a pariah, Richard Muller is humanity's last hope Richard Muller was an honorable diplomat who braved unimaginable dangers to make contact with the first-known race of intelligent aliens. But those aliens left a mark on him: a psychic wound that emanates a telepathic miasma his fellow humans can neither cure nor endure. Muller is exiled to the remote planet of Lemnos, where he is left, deeply embittered, at the heart of a deadly maze . . . until a new alien race appears, seemingly intent on exterminating humanity. Only Muller can communicate with them, due to the very condition that has made him an outcast. But will Muller stick his neck out for the people who so callously rejected him? "[The Man in the Maze] is courageous, exploring new territory, with one foot in the New Wave camp, [but] it is still mindful of its roots. From the past of SF we get the strains of Space Opera, replete with incomprehensible aliens and mysterious artefacts." -From the introduction by Neil Gaiman "One of science fiction's modern masters . . . his words and his work have shaped the whole direction of the field." -Chicago Sun-Times "Robert Silverberg's versatile, skeptical intelligence controls a lavish and splendid imagination." -Ursula K. Le Guin "Done Silverberg's way, science fiction is a fine art." -Associated Press Robert Silverberg is one of science fiction's most beloved writers, and the author of such contemporary classics as Dying Inside, Downward to the Earth, and Lord Valentine's Castle. He is a past president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the winner of five Nebula Awards and five Hugo Awards. In 2004 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America presented him with the Grand Master Award. Silverberg is one of twenty-nine writers to have received that distinction.
