Darwinia: A Novel of a Very Different Twentieth Century
In 1912, history was changed by the Miracle, when the old world of Europe was replaced by Darwinia, a strange land of nightmarish jungle and antediluvian monsters. To some, the Miracle was an act of divine retribution; to others, it is an opportunity to carve out a new empire.
Leaving an America now ruled by religious fundamentalists, young Guilford Law travels to Darwinia on a mission of discovery that will take him further than he can possibly imagine...to a shattering revelation about mankind's destiny in the universe.
Robert Charles Wilson has crafted a brilliant science fiction novel—a view of an utterly different 20th century.
Darwinia is a 1999 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.
