About the book
Our continued existence was never a given. We've always wanted to know our destiny. But when the end seems in sight, how will the world react? An alien artefact plucked from Earth's orbit throws the world into chaos with both warning and a promise. For the prophet who dreams of new world order, survival means putting an end to democracy. For the movie mogul with a talent for spinning facts, the public doesn't know what's best for them. And for the reporter determined to discover the truth, the world needs to know what's at stake. All are determined to hold off Armageddon. All will play their part in what's to come. Both brilliant and terrifying, David Brin's novel of the near future is a tour de force of storytelling. It is the work of a modern master of Sff (science Fiction & Fantasy).

Read Review   Want to write a review?
In Existence, David Brin takes on one of the fundamental themes in science fiction - and what is also one of the fundamental questions humanity faces in this century. Since Brin is both a great storyteller and one of the most imaginative writers around, Existence is not to be missed>
An impressive introduction to one of SF's major talents>
Take a world soaked in near-future strangeness and complexity... Hotwire with wisdom and wonder... Existence is as urgent and as relevant as anything by Stross or Doctorow, but with the cosmic vision of Bear or Benford. Brin is back.
The story of first contact between mankind and alien is relayed with rarely encountered intelligence and through gripping twists>
Existence is bursting with ideas, including near-future tech, first contact with aliens, and the exploration of what it means to be human>
A masterpiece of rock-hard SF>
Brin tackles a plethora of cutting-edge concepts... with the skill of a visionary futurologist ... Existence is Brin's first novel in 10 years, and it's been well worth the wait>
