|Plot Summary of The Hercules Text|
Astronomers start receiving transmissions from a rogue pulsar unbelievably far away. There's no chance of returning the message within our planet's lifetime, but they can still receive. How the message is being transmitted, and how they got our attention in the first place, immediately set the tone for the novel.
