The inverted world - interior view of a space colony in a hollow asteroid, as envisioned by science fiction writers like Arthur C. clarke, Kim Stanley Robinson and Greg Bear.

Shaman by Kim Stanley Robinson. A tremendous new novel depicting the lives of our human ancestors in Western Europe, 32,000 years ago. Full of believable, naturalistic detail, human and social relationships, and the creation of the cave paintings discovered in Chauvet Cave, France, in 1994.
2047: For the small Pacific Coast community of San Onofre, life in the aftermath of a devastating nuclear attack is a matter of survival, a day-to-day struggle to stay alive. But young Hank Fletcher dreams of the world that might have been, and might yet be--and dreams of playing a crucial role in America's rebirth.
Kim Stanley Robinson (born March 23, 1952) earned a B.A. and Ph.D. at the University of California at San Diego and an M.A. at Boston University.
