Description
In the sequel to the multi-award winning sci-fi novel Rama , a second Raman spaceship enters our solar system and "offers one surprise after another" ( The New York Times ). Years ago, the enormous, enigmatic alien spacecraft Rama sailed through our solar system as mind-boggling proof that life existed--or had existed--elsewhere in the universe. Now, at the dawn of the twenty-third century, another ship is discovered hurtling toward us. A crew of Earth's best and brightest minds is assembled to rendezvous with the massive vessel. They are armed with everything we know about Raman technology and culture. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to encounter on board Rama II : cosmic secrets that are startling, sensational--and perhaps even deadly. "A masterpiece . . . one of the year's best hard SF epics." -- The Houston Post

Description
Years after the first encounter with a mysterious alien spacecraft in Rendezvous With Rama, a second spaceship enters the solar system-and a team of Earth's most accomplished scientists and cosmonauts is sent to intercept it. The human crew is no stranger to Raman culture and technology. But Rama II offers surprises not encountered on the first ship-surprises that could turn out to be deadly. Set against a backdrop of economic crisis that threatens all human settlements throughout the solar system, Rama II tells the story of an advanced scientific team dealing with the unexpected both on an enigmatic alien spacecraft and within their own psyches.
