Time-traveling to the end of the Cretaceous Period where the Earth is in the grip of the dinosaurs, Orion and the love of his life must save the Creators—and the universe—from the satanic reptilian leader of the saurians. Praise for the Orion Saga "Nonstop action and mind-bending concepts combine to make Orion absolutely unforgettable. . . . Bova brings it to life on a canvas spread over time and space." —Isaac Asimov "Slambang SF adventure mingles with speculative theology in this gripping story of an immortal's hatred, a mortal's love, and a death-struggle that spans a million years." —Spider Robinson on Orion "Six-time Hugo Award winner Bova doesn't disappoint!" —Los Angeles Daily News on Orion in the Dying Time "Bova's adroit use of detail makes the setting ring true; his depictions of historical personages as well as his fictional creations are psychologically sound. The sounds, the scents, and the sensibility of the ancient world permeate this well-wrought adventure." —Publishers Weekly on Orion and the Conqueror "Bova creates characters that come alive on the page. . . . It is perfectly paced so that the reader has trouble putting the book down." —The Clarion-Ledger on Orion in the Dying Time "Bova presents enough solid historical backing to give the story a ring of authenticity." —Starlog on Orion and the Conqueror "Rip-roaring science fiction . . . tightly-constructed and fast-moving." —Science Fiction Chronicle on Orion in the Dying Time "One of the best SF military series around." —VOYA on Orion Among the Stars About the Author Ben Bova is a six-time winner of the Hugo Award and many other awards, including the John W.
