From the Author

I have felt for a long time that we are standing on the brink ofa truly transcendental event comparable in its significance tothe first emergence of life from the sea on to the land - andnobody is talking about it. I was afraid it might happen before Icould get "SIRAT" published. It hasn't. But it will. "SIRAT"represents the only serious speculation of which I am awareregarding the implications of this event for mankind.

Editorial Reviews

". . . SIRAT moves along at a brisk pace from its well-founded premise to its startling conclusion. The dialogue is crisp, the settings evocative, and the action believable . . . With SIRAT, David Gardiner has produced a work whose implications will resonate in the mind and make readers pause whenever they sit down at the keyboard before a glowing monitor."
