Aliens - Moties - were first contacted in AD3017 in the region of space known as the Coalsack. The eponymous mote in his eye, which has winked out, much to the distress of pious Himmists, just might have been Motie laser light. It might even indicate the position of their home planet.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"Possibly the finest science fiction novel I have read." - Robert Heinlein
