250 years ago, the starcruiser "Argos" brought the first settlers to Destiny - and abandoned them there. As the craft departed, it hovered above the planet and seared a wide Road into the rock. No settler has ever returned from the Road, but accused of murder, Jemmy Bloocher has no other escape.
Larry Niven is the author of science fictions classics such as the RINGWORLD series, THE INTEGRAL TREES and DREAM PARK. He is the creator of the popular MAN-KZIN series and co-author of bestsellers such as LUCIFER'S HAMMER and THE LEGACY OF HEOROT and the no.1 New York Times bestseller - FOOTFALL. Now he returns in grand form with the story of Planet Destiny, mankind's second attempt at colonising an inhabitable planet of a distant star. Following a fight which ends in the accidental death of a trader, Jimmy Blocher is forced to flee the small community of Spiral Town. There is only one road he can follow - the long, straight road that was forged by the heat of lander-craft Cavorite as it left the same town 250 years ago.
Niven has ideas the size of planets. TIME OUT A writer of supreme talent. TOM CLANCY The paradigm SF personality of the last several decades. Gregory Benford His tales have a pulse-pounding narrative drive. Niven is a true master. Frederick Pohl
