Neanderthal Parallax

Robert J. Sawyer

Tor Books

Neanderthal physicist Ponder Boddit, a character you will never forget, returns to our world and to his relationship with geneticist Mary Vaughn, in this sequel to Hominids, winner of the Hugo Award for best novel, as cultural exchanges between the two Earths begin.

Robert J. Sawyer, an award-winning and bestselling writer, hits the peak of his powers in this trilogy about our world and a parallel one in which Neanderthals became the dominant intelligent species. This powerful idea allows Sawyer to examine some of the deep-rooted assumptions of contemporary human civilization, by confronting us with another civilization, just as morally valid, that made other choices. As we see daily life in a present-day world that is radically different from ours, we experience the bursts of wonder and enlightenment that are the finest pleasures of science fiction.

Humans is a 2004 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.
