The Gods Themselves Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Gods Themselves

In the near future, an alien civilization (of trisexual energy beings) in another universe contacts humanity proposing an exchange of energy based on the difference of physic laws between the two universes. Unfortunately, the mingling of the conditions of their universe and ours, while providing unlimited energy, would cause our sun to explode. Some scientists strive to solve the problem, and in doing so they must fight obtuse established authorities who refuse to listen to them. The book is remarkable for the part in wich the strange alien culture is described.
