Locus 2017 Recommended Reading List

The aliens have arrived... they've landed their Embassy ship on a platform in New York Harbor, and will only speak with the United Nations. They say that their world is so different from Earth, in terms of gravity and atmosphere, that they cannot leave their ship. The population of Earth has erupted in fear and speculation.

One day Dr. Marianne Jenner, an obscure scientist working with the human genome, receives an invitation that she cannot refuse. The Secret Service arrives at her college to escort her to New York, for she has been invited, along with the Secretary General of the UN and a few other ambassadors, to visit the alien Embassy.

The truth is about to be revealed. Earth's most elite scientists have ten months to prevent a disaster--and not everyone is willing to wait.

Review quote

Praise for the Hugo Award-winning Yesterday's Kin

Kress has proven that she can pack a huge amount of story into a small container, and here the author expertly explores one family s experience of alien visitation. Library Journal

Sparely constructed and cleverly resolved, Yesterday s Kin provides everything readers need for an immersive plunge into a frightening, fascinating and inescapable predicament. Seattle Times

Nancy Kress delivers one of the strongest stories of the year to date.... As with all of Kress s work, this is very nicely crafted, with well-paced prose that carries you through the story, complex human characters, a compelling and conflict-driven human story, a clever twist partway through, and an even cleverer twist at the end. Gardner Dozois, editor of The Year s Best Science Fiction series
