Probability Moon Publisher's Summary

Humankind has expanded out into interstellar space using star gates-technological remnants left behind by an ancient, long-vanished race. But the technology comes with a price. Among the stars, humanity encountered the Fallers, a strange alien race bent on nothing short of genocide. It's all-out war, and humanity is losing.

In this fragile situation, a new planet is discovered, inhabited by a pre-industrial race who experience "shared reality"-they're literally compelled to share the same worldview. A team of human scientists is dispatched-but what they don't know is that their mission of first contact is actually a covert military operation. For one of the planet's moons is really a huge mysterious artifact of the same origin as the star gates...and it just may be the key to winning the war.

    Kress returns to a future in which the human race is losing an interstellar war. A shipload of scientists from Earth is sent to study the artifact discovered on a distant planet. The artifact is not only a powerful weapon, but possibly the key to a lost superscience. This is an intense novel of war and science that expands Nancy Kress' already large audience.

    Centered on the same world as Kresss Nebula Award-winning novelette, Flowers of Aulit Prison, the Probability Trilogy has already been recognized as her next great work by critics and readers alike. In Probability Space, humanity is losing the war with the alien Fallers. As the action moves from Earth to Mars to the farthest reaches of known space, four humans armed with little more than an unproven theory try to enter the Fallers home star system.
