Infinity Beach by Jack McDevitt We have always stood along a beach opening onto an infinite sea. That sea beckons us, but for ages we were limited to looking across its expanse with our telescopes and our imaginations. In time, we learned to build outriggers and we got to a few of the barrier islands. Today we have finally in our hands a true four-master, a ship that will take us beyond whatever horizons may exist.

PROLOGUE THE AIR WAS heavy with incense and the sweet odor of hot wax. Cam Chulohn loved the plain stone chapel. He knelt on the hard bench and watched the crystal water dribble across Father Currys fingers into the silver bowl held by the postulant.

There, he thought, is the essence of our nature, displayed endlessly throughout the ages for all who can ...

When theyd arrived, only a few days ago, Delta Karpis had been a standard class G star, serene, placid, drifting quietly through the great deeps with its family of worlds, as it had done for 6 billion years. Now it was a misshapen bag, dragged through the night by an invisible hand.
