Bestselling, award-winning futurist David Brin returns to globe-spanning, high concept fiction with EXISTENCE. This 3-minute preview offers glimpses and scenes from the novel, all painted especially for this trailer by renowned web-artist Patrick Farley, conveying some of the drama and what may be at stake, in our near future.
Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there's something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn't on the decades' old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth's infomesh about an "alien artifact."
Thrown into the maelstrom of worldwide shared experience, the Artifact is a game-changer. A message in a bottle; an alien capsule that wants to communicate. The world reacts as humans always do: with fear and hope and selfishness and love and violence. And insatiable curiosity.
