New York : Walker, 1989.
an interesting theory about what happened to the dinosaurs. They calculated
a destruction of Earth's resources so they built huge spaceships and went
into suspended animation. The surprise was when it came time to reclaim
the Earth, they encounter humans that had evolved from tree-dwellers, something
their calculations had not predicted. The United States sends a military
PR person which totally confuses the being because they take what he says
literally and he's always joking. Tension builds as mutiny aboard the space
ship threatens to cut short the beings patient negotiation. When push comes
to shove, a powerful human trait startles the beings into reconsidering
their plans to inherit the Earth right then.
