About the Book

In Jurassic time, when dinosaurs reigned supreme, a reclusive alien civilization of microrobotic natural historians arrived on earth. Unnoticed, they have recorded the earth's history in magnificent detail. They have never interfered.

But government engineers in Arizona are up to something new and dangerous. The aliens must finally introduce themselves.

Matthew Crigler, a young professor of geophysics, is the first person to knowingly meet the aliens. He becomes trapped in a strange plan to make the rest of humanity aware of their presence.

Set in the near future, The Observers is a satirical and humorous story of a human race destined to coexist with a civilization of intelligent machines.
