Maximum Ice is back

In this lovely re-issue, my story of an altered earth, and a cold welcome to the return of the generation ship Star Road. Available in eBook.

Nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award.

maximumice for webZoya Kundara has lived on the space vessel Star Road for 250 years. As Ship Mother, she is awakened from Deep Sleep in times of crisis, providing counsel to generations of its Romany crew. Now the ship has returned home, only to discover an Earth blanketed in a pearl-white mantle called Ice–a grand and mysterious ecology of information-bearing crystals.

To find a home for her crew, Zoya must approach the denizens of this  new Earth: The Ice Nuns, who seek sole control of the physics-defying crystals; people huddled like moles in underground techno-warrens; and the snow witches, both mad and prophetic . . . and one in particular, who will defend the kingdom of Ice with power and immortal cunning.

Tropic of Creation is back

tropicOFcreation for webA coming of age story, and a world like you’ve never seen before, one that undergoes a metamorphosis. This is one of my favorites among my books, now back in this lovely re-issue.

The planet Null is not what it seems. On a brief stop over, Captain Eli Dammand will find his routine mission taking a disastrous turn. The planet is about to undergo a radical seasonal change, one that will hatch monstrous, rapacious creatures. There are few refuges from the rampaging alternate season. One is in the secret ahtran habitat far underground. It’s no place for a human army officer, as Eli will learn.

The other is in the nests of the monsters themselves. Not that his passenger, 14-year old Sascha, ever had a choice. . . .
