Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Ophiuchi Hotline
by John Varley

Fascinating early Varley book; an alien race has taken over the Earth to care for its other intelligent life, paying no attention to the humans who are scattered around the solar system. Technology made available on a "hotline" beam of information apparently from the constellation Ophiuchi has allowed human beings to survive.
