Anvil of Stars

This month’s book is Anvil of Stars by Greg Bear.

Anvil of Stars (1992) is a book by Greg Bear and a sequel to The Forge of God. In the novel, volunteers from among the children saved from the recently destroyed Earth are sent on a quest by a galactic faction called “The Benefactors” to find and destroy “The Killers”, the civilisation who sent the killer probes in the first place. The Law that the Benefactors subscribe to requires the “Destruction of all intelligences responsible for or associated with the manufacture of self-replicating and destructive devices.”

Why not read Anvil of Stars and join us at Madlab for a bit of a natter about it? Even if you don’t finish reading it, come along anyway!
