of The Measure of the Universe

September, 2002

The Measure Of The Universe by Ellen Larson is the story of an archeologist from Aldebaran who arrives in the Greek isles for the purpose of studying ancient inscriptions. He meets a sharp-tongued professor of paleography and the alien teams up with the human, joined by a mutual love of exploring ancient ruins and writings, only to discover a hidden plot against both their worlds. The Measure Of The Universe is enthusiastically recommended to science fiction enthusiasts as an original, wild, and fun-loving romp touching on limits between and beyond human and nonhuman cultures alike.
