Mysterium (1994)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
07.11.04

Mysterium (1994) Author: Robert Charles WilsonI'm a sucker for stories that involve a town or city that's transported to some other time-period or to an alien planet. It's such a cool idea.A very strange object is found by archeologists in Turkey, a fragment that holds incredible power. It's sent to a top secret government installation in Two Rivers, Michigan, where things go horribly awry. One night the residents of the town see strange lights coming from the lab-and the next morning the populace find themselves cut off from the rest of the world.They discover that they have been transported to an alternate reality governed by a rigid theocracy, run by some very narrow-minded and repressed individuals. An agency called the Bureau send in an ethnologist by the name of Linneth Stone to study this Midwestern town-and she finds out how free spirited the townspeople are in comparison to her own kind.The government comes to view the town as a threat to their way of life and plan on setting off an atomic bomb to obliterate all traces of it. Some of the townspeople find out and make plans to leave before it happens-but is there enough time?I found this book fascinating in that it shows a completely different world than what we're used to. And the twist at the ending took me by surprise.For some reason Wilson's books are hard to find once they are out of print-but definitely check them out when you come across them.
