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.

Review quote

" In the best tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne, and H. G. Wells... A page-turner." -- "Toronto Globe and Mail" on "Darwinia" " Rich, lucid, and literate... Comparable to Philip D. Dick or A. E. Van Vogt. Remarkable indeed." -- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "Darwinia" " Robert Charles Wilson is a hell of a storyteller." -- Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly," on "Spin"
