Beneath the unbearable light of the Kefahuchi Tract - a huge, fulminating ocean of radiant energy deep in the galaxy - three objects lie on the barren surface of an asteroid: an abandoned spacecraft, a pair of what look like bone dice, and a human skeleton. What are they, and what do they mean?

Why?
What was so amazing about it that hasn't already been told?
Some people will argure that the Bible is a brilliant and inventive book.

Then I just need to ask why it is mandatory?
If I don't read it what do I "not" qualify for besides having reference to discuss the details?

There's a lot of the Strugatsky 'Zone' in Harrison, but the Zone has a core; Harrison's nucleus I found difficult to determine.
