Description

In 1912, history was changed by the Miracle, when the old world of Europe was replaced by Darwinia, a strange land of nightmarish jungle and antediluvian monsters. To some, the Miracle was an act of divine retribution; to others, it is an opportunity to carve out a new empire.

Leaving an America now ruled by religious fundamentalists, young Guilford Law travels to Darwinia on a mission of discovery that will take him further than he can possibly imagine…to a shattering revelation about mankind's destiny in the universe.

Robert Charles Wilson has crafted a brilliant science fiction novel—a view of an utterly different 20th century.

Darwiniais a 1999 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.

Editorial Review

“In the best tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne, and H. G. Wells…A page-turner.” —Toronto Globe and Mail on Darwinia

“Rich, lucid, and literate…Comparable to Philip D. Dick or A. E. Van Vogt. Remarkable indeed.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Darwinia

“Robert Charles Wilson is a hell of a storyteller.” —Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly, on Spin
