DEDICATION: "To my mother".
COVER TEXT:
As billions of people around the globe sit glued to their television sets in the year 2015, Richard Orme, captain of the first expedition to land on Mars, takes another giant step for mankind. His first words, as he steps of the landing craft onto the red planet, are transmitted to Earth minutes later: "Christopher Columbus, you should be here."
Perhaps he was. Someone has been here. A spaceship sits half-buried under the red dust and heavy boulders. Nearby, there's a tunnel door.
Richard Orme and his crew, dragged into the tunnel by Martians, enter a strange subterranean world, a world where Martians pay homage to a sunlike globe - floating high above their cities of the interior. Orme thought they were sun worshippers. But there is a man who dwells within the flaming orb. And these people call him "Jesus."
And the man they called "Jesus" would go back to Earth. He would be labeled "the Anti-Christ". And Richard Orme asked himself, Would history repeat itself... once more?
