THE GIANT LEAP: Mankind Heads for the Stars

Adrian Berry, Author . Tor $24.95 (342p) ISBN 978-0-312-87785-9

Giordano Bruno was murdered by Inquisition musclemen for contending that other stars had planets. Fortunately, Berry (The Fourth Reich), fellow of Britain's Royal Astronomical Society, will suffer no such penalty for predicting colonization, within 200 years, of planets outside our solar system. Berry's lively prose and accessible arguments for "innumerable earths" will appeal to pop-science and sci-fi fans as well as professionals, even if they disagree. Illus. (July)
