Slonczewski's world building is magnificent.
Kirkus Review
Fascinating, flawlessly developed, meticulously detailed.
SF Site
A most compelling and engrossing read.
The New Yorker
In Joan Slonczewski's Brain Plague...a starving artist on the planet Veledon agrees to let a colony of 'brain enhancers' occupy her skull. These microscopic creatures live in the brain's outer linings, causing bursts of genius'or irreparable harm. The creatures themselves are like tiny human beings; one of their greatest concerns is getting their young to breed.

    One of the greatest unknown authors out there!

    This book was so fantastic with a factual view of the fiction writing. The characters and plot are truly original, and this deserves a sequal!
