Cover & Synopsis: “The Goliath Stone” by Larry Niven and Matthew Joseph Harrington

This is the cover art and synopsis of the upcoming novel The Goliath Stone by Larry Niven and Matthew Joseph Harrington.

Here’s the synopsis:

A visionary new tale from Larry Niven and Matthew Joseph Harrington

The year is 2052 and Dr. Toby Glyer has effected miracle cures with the use of nanotechnology. But Glyer’s controversial nanites are living things—a new form of life—and they have more uses than just medical. They also have the potential to make everyone on Earth rich from the wealth of asteroids…if he can control them.

Unfortunately, as every parent learns, when you produce a new, thinking being, the plans it makes are not necessarily your plans. And when a two-hundredgigaton asteroid that rivals the rock that felled the dinosaurs is hurtling toward Earth on a collision course, you don’t have time to argue. Will Glyer’s nanites be Earth’s salvation or destruction?

  1. I’ve run mostly cold on the past several of the Niven collaborations…so will approach with caution.

    Pft. I prefer his co-authored works.

    Does this book have an ending? Or is it another rip-off like “Bowl of Heaven” where the book ends in the middle of the story?
