"TWO EPIC NOVELS BY A NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR TOGETHER IN ONE VOLUME: Cradle of Saturn and The Legend That Was Earth. Earth is in danger from cosmic catastrophe and alien overlords.
Two classic novels from a best-selling master of SF.
Cradle of Saturn
Discoveries made by colonists on the moons of Saturn show that the Solar System has undergone repeated cataclysms and the last was only a few thousand years. This flies in the face of accepted scientific dogma, and is dismissed by Earth’s authorities—until the planet Jupiter suddenly emits a white-hot Earth-sized protoplanet that hurtles sunward on a collision course with Earth.
The Legend That Was Earth
The alien Hyadeans have showered high-tech gifts on the population of Earth and are offering to make a paradise of the planet. But when wealthy socialite Roland Cade discovers the dark underbelly of the alien presence, and learns that his ex-wife is one of the so-called terrorists who are fighting against the alien takeover, he’s forced to choose sides. Soon, he’s caught up in a terrifying conflict that threatens the very existence of the Earth.
