If you’re quick you’ll be able to pick up a copy of David Brin’s Existence (Orbit £13.99) with a rather impressive 3D cover. It’s a smart-looking book and is bound to be a collector’s item: best buy two copies.
“An alien artefact plucked from Earth’s orbit throws the world into chaos with both warning and a promise. For the prophet who dreams of new world order, survival means putting an end to democracy. For the movie mogul with a talent for spinning facts, the public doesn’t know what’s best for them. And for the reporter determined to discover the truth, the world needs to know what’s at stake. All are determined to hold off Armageddon.”
