Review: The Hammer of God
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Clarke's The Hammer of Godis a hard science fiction horror story wherein Clarke explores the familiar theme of a 'planet killer' asteroid on its way to destroy Earth. Prior to the events of The Hammer of God, Spaceguard has identified and tracked all the Near-Earth threats, but one was outside the range of their tracking methods. Spaceguard must use outdated and untested equipment in a race against time to alter the orbit of a planet-killer.
The Hammer of God is classic hard science fiction written with the style and class that only Arthur C. Clarke could accomplish. Highly recommended science fiction!
