Intervention

by Julian May
Release date: 1987
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Note! Original edition: Intervention: A Root Tale to the Galactic Milieu and a Vinculum between it and The Saga of Pliocene Exile. Released in the USA as two mass market paperbacks: The Surveillance and The Metaconcert.

For 60,000 years the five races of the Galactic Milieu have watched and waited for the time when human mental development on Earth is ready for the Intervention...

As the twentieth century draws to its end, phenomenal mental powers are displayed by "operants" all across our planet... They can "farspeak" one another telepathically. They can build mental shields and they are capable of coercion by power of mind.

One of these is Rogatien Remillard, a dealer in secondhand books, whose memoirs – written a century on – form the core of this chronicle. They tell of a world where the mind has become a weapon; and of two brothers, each possessed of extraordinary powers – one a peace-bringer, the other an advocate of evil...
