The Listeners by James Gunn was the first of the modern-era SETI radio-telescope .
The Listeners by James Gunn was the first of the modern-era SETI radio-telescope contact science fiction novels, and is the best. Listeners' author James Gunn is a Hugo-winning science fiction Grandmaster, ranked on a short list with Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke, and other famous SFWA Grandmasters.
James E. Gunn "Is there anybody there?" said the Traveler, Knocking on the moonlit door. MacDonald heard them and knew that there was meaning in them, that they were trying to communicate and that he could understand them and respond to them if he could only concentrate on what they were saying, but he couldn't bring himself to make the effort. Back behind everything, lurking like a silent shadow behind the closed door, is the question we can never answer except positively: Is there anybody there?"
I The Listeners is the novel that inspired Carl Sagan to write Contact.
For fifty years Project scientists had listened from their backwater. I The Listeners is the novel that inspired Carl Sagan to write Contact. James Gunn certainly blazed new trails in writing this in the early 1970s and, while it does go places that Contact never does, it feels a bit dated now as the scientists are men & the women are wives or secretaries. Frankly Contact is a much better novel, so if you are interested in reading a novel about listening for alien life, I would recommend that.
