Journal Entry 1 by wingjudygreeneyeswing from San Diego, California USA on Tuesday, June 16, 2020
"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."

Great sci-fi, I love Pohl's writing.

From the back cover: "Scientists and psychics are predicting eruptions and earthquakes that could devastate half the earth, caused by a rare conjunction of the planets. It's called SYZYGY. A ruthless land speculator decides to make a quick killing by starting a panic. Then others cash in on the Syzygy Effect for their own greed: a crackpot cult preaching doom, a politician out for votes, a quack scientist out to make the headlines. When California is paralyzed by brush fires and flash floods, hysteria explodes. Only a dedicated scientist and a beautiful NASA astrophysicist can prevent massive destruction. But they're up against forces that will stop at nothing to keep the truth from getting out."

Still a good story after all these years.

A wandering book -- the karma of literature!
