An alien shuttle craft lands outside the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. A six-legged, two-armed alien emerges and says, in perfect English, “Take me to a paleontologist.”

In the distant past, Earth, the alien’s home planet, and the home planet of another alien species, all experienced the same five cataclysmic events at the same time (one example: the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs). Both alien races believe this proves the existence of God: i.e., he’s obviously been playing with the evolution of life on each of these planets. From this provocative launch point, Sawyer tells a fast-paced, morally and intellectually challenging story of ambitious scope and touching humanity. Calculating God is SF on a grand scale.

Calculating God is a 2001 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.

Praise for Calculating God

Praise for Calculating God:

“An enthralling story…. [The] climax [is] an exhilarating and touching glimpse of transcendence.”
--Starlog

“Vigorous speculation…Sawyer ends with some grandeur worthy of vintage Arthur C. Clarke.”
--The Denver Post

“Sawyer is first and foremost a writer of ideas, some concept that can drive a narrative through to a grand conclusion, one that remains true to science but often achieves that sense of transcendence that Samuel R. Delany once said was the sine qua non of science fiction. This is Sawyer’s great strength, and it’s fully present in Calculating God….A intellectual thriller with real bite.”
--The Edmonton Journal
