Titan cover Titan by John Varley

Published by Ace Books

Reviewed by Leigh Kimmel

Imagine an alien creature so vast that it is a world unto itself, with its own ecosystem filled with wondrous and mysterious life. This is Gaia, the strange creature that a Terran spaceship accidentally discovers in orbit around Saturn.

Suddenly the humans are in a maddening race to understand this world and find some way out. But with the natives fighting an insane war among themselves, that may well be easier said than done.

Worse yet, powerful forces want to make sure they never do. Gaia is a world divided against itself, a god going insane.
