"A modern parable about the conflict between science and religious faith. Painstakingly researched, lucidly written, meticulously crafted — a vivid depiction of the scientific method and the scientific mind." — Books in Canada
Sixty-five million years ago, aliens transplanted Earth's dinosaurs to another world. Now, intelligent saurians -- the Quintaglios -- have emerged. Afsan, the Quintaglio counterpart of Galileo, must convince his people of the truth about their place in the universe before astronomical forces rip the dinosaurs' new home apart.
This exclusive Kobo edition contains the bonus Aurora Award-winning short story Just Like Old Times.
"Exciting, amusing — [but] much more than an adventure tale. Crucial to the plot is Afsan's struggles to find the truth of his own destiny and his questioning of the role of science in countering religious dogma. Sawyer has created a world exceptional in its attention to detail. Unobtrusively, he embeds everything about the language, religion, science, social customs, political intrigue, and even saurian diet." — SFRA Review
"Some books are just fun; some are interesting because of the characters; others attract you with the unusual or by looking at the world in a new way. In Far-Seer, Robert Sawyer has written a book that has all of these qualities." — Amazing Stories
"A cracking good yarn. Here's your chance to get in on the ground floor of a series that promises to deliver something truly different." — Charles de Lint in The Journal of Canadian Content in Speculative Literature
