Phoenix Pick’s Book of the Month: BEYOND THE DOORS OF DEATH by Robert Silverberg and Damien Broderick
About the book:
“Broad, intriguing speculation on human evolution and first contact.” — Publishers Weekly
“Born With the Dead” (the novella) was nominated for every major science fiction award when it was originally published in 1974, winning the Nebula and Locus awards.
The author now revisits the classic story with Australian author Damien Broderick. Broderick uses Robert Silverberg’s original novella as a starting point for a brilliant leap into the far future, widening the scope and tenor of the original story by revisiting some of the subtler implications of the original story.
“It’s one of those pieces so powerful that I doubted anyone could create anything of matching strength in the same vein, but Broderick does a good job.” — Don D’Ammassa (DonDammassa.com)
“What Silverberg left unanswered, Australian critic Broderick (Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels, 1985–2010) explains .” — Publishers Weekly
