By Mike Maddox.
Douglas Scofield has retired from the world of astronomy and, following the death of his wife, now runs a fish farm with his daughter, who is expecting her first child.
All he wants is peace and quiet and a chance to write his book about fishing.
However, a visit from an old colleague brings news of a message from a distant world, the very sign of life Douglas spent his career searching for.
Is it safe to reply? Indeed, should they reply at all - and to what purpose?
