Encounter with Tiber
by Buzz Aldrin and John Barnes
First printing, signed by Buzz Aldrin (see picture below).
A fine hardcover copy in fine dust jacket!

From the dust jacket flap:

Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin shared pehraps the greatest moment in human history when he and Neil Armstrong became the first humans to set foot on the moon. Now Aldrin, a man who has actually explored another world, teams up with bestselling author John Barnes, "a major SF writer of the 1990s" ( Washington Post ), to create a saga as vast as Carl Sagan's Contact , as gripping as James Michener's Space , and as tense and human as Apollo 13 .

It is a chronicle of two grand quests, two dynasties of heroes. A new space race is sparked by a bitter feud between scientist-astronaut Chris Terence and visionary entrepreneur Sig Jarlsbourg: two enemies determined to claim the frontier blazed by the

Solving the Tiberian mystery becomes a legacy, driving Chris's son and Jarlsbourg's heir, Jason Terence, to found the first city on Mars, and leading their descendants beyond the confines of the solar system.

Encounter with Tiber is the saga of another family as well. Its heroes were brave, desperate, ancient beings who learned all too well the precious fragility of lives and worlds. Beings who did indeed come to our ancestors in chariots of fire -- and who proved to be anything but gods.

In a time of budget battles and lowered expectations, authors Aldrin and Barnes present all the realistic strategies needed to keep the dreams of space alive. For space is the next chapter in human history, the next challenge of the human spirit, and the next expression of our eternal need to explore beyond the highest mountain and journey beyond the farthest shore.
