Showing that truth is stranger than fiction, Sylvain Neuvel's A History of What Comes Next weaves a sci-fi thriller that blends a fast moving, darkly satirical look at 1940s rocketry with the amorality of progress, and the nature of violence.
Always run, never fight.
Preserve the knowledge.
Survive at all cost.
Take them to the stars.

A darkly satirical first contact thriller, as seen through the eyes of the women who make progress possible and the men who are determined to stop them...
