The Human Son

De (autor): Adrian J. Walker

The Human Son - Adrian J. Walker

The Human Son

De (autor): Adrian J. Walker


Solaris Spring 2020 Lead Title from critically acclaimed author, Adrian J. Walker

A startling, emotional, beautiful (and at times funny) book - one that feels like the best sort of science fiction, a book that should be enjoyed widely, a book that speaks of what it is to be human, a parent, and a child.

500 YEARS IN THE FUTURE, EARTH IS A PARADISE... WITHOUT US.

The Earth was dying, and only the Erta could save it. Created to be genetically superior, hyper-intelligent and unburdened by the full range of human emotions, they succeeded by removing the cause: humans.

Now the Erta are faced with a dilemma--if they reintroduce the rebellious and violent Homo sapiens, all of their work could be undone.

They decide to raise one child: a sole human to decide if we should again inherit the Earth.

But the quiet and clinical Ima finds that there is more to raising a human than she had expected; and there is more to humanity's history than she has been told.

"This impressive, surprisingly hopeful take is as rigorous as a thought experiment as it is delightful as pure entertainment." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Adrian Walker breaks your heart in unexpected ways" -- Anne Corlett, author of The Space Between the Stars

"The Human Son delivers a story that fosters a curious mind and an open heart, questioning and inspiring both without judgement." - SciFiNow 4 Star Review

"A prevailing mood of ironic charm." - The Times
