Fred Hoyle's scientific pedigree is up front in this vintage novel, co-written with son Geoffrey. The story is based on a classic SF premise--a star, with its own planetary system, is heading towards our own. It passes close enough for us to mount an expedition to one of the planets of the visiting star--an earth-like world with detectable signs of plant life. The planet turns out to be inhabited by vastly superior telepathic beings who hide themselves from the visitors. One of them takes possession of the mind of an astronaut, returning to earth to spread a dramatic and unwanted telepathic warning against the nuclear arms race, before returning on a hijacked spacecraft

The black cloud by Fred Hoyle( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Astronomers in England and America have made a terrifying discovery: an ominous black cloud the size of Jupiter is traveling straight towards our solar system. If their calculations are correct, the cloud's path will bring it between the Earth and the Sun, blocking out the Sun's rays and threatening unimaginable consequences for our planet. With the fate of every living thing on Earth in the balance, world leaders assemble a team of brilliant scientists to figure out a way to stop the cloud. But when they uncover the truth behind its origins, they will be forced to reconsider everything they think they know about the nature of life in the universe. A landmark of British science fiction, The Black Cloud (1957) was the first novel by world-renowned astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001), who used his own scientific background to create a frighteningly real apocalyptic thriller in which, Hoyle said, "there is very little that could not conceivably happen." Long recognized as a classic in Great Britain, Hoyle's novel returns to print in the U.S. for the first time in over 40 years in this edition, published to coincide with the centennial of the author's birth and featuring a new foreword by Geoffrey Hoyle
