“The Three-Body Problem” is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multiple award winning phenomenon from China’s Cultural Revolution, a secret military project sends signals into space to establish contact with aliens. An alien civilization on the brink of destruction captures the signal and plans to invade Earth.
