Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This is the story of Deputy Rachel Ajmani of the Port Authority on Earth Port. Things have gotten severely hectic for all the humans in charge on Earth Port since the Rofan spaceport was suddenly closed, the Xeno-Relations Committee of Earth's World Council has decided to conduct a surprise audit, and a stowaway has been discovered on a Rofan spaceship. The Rofans, Phi-Nurians, and Kamians are all jockeying to claim this stowaway. At the same time, two unidentified port workers have been seen sabotaging the station, but can't be found or stopped. The Rofan resemble lupine Klingans, with the same penchant for violence. The Phi-Nurians resemble large cockroaches with no ability to control excretion, and a proclivity for mindless aggression when confronted. And, of course, the human saboteurs may be the wiliest villains of all. There are some great characters (most well developed), as well as lots of action, plot twists, and even some romance. The title is part of a poem supposedly from The Collected Flights of Prudence Clarke, which I could not find in any source. It was convincing enough for me to check, so bravo to Wingert for not only her rip-roaring yarn, but also her poetic abilities. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Penguin, DAW, 482p., Ages 15 to adult.

    A Page-Turner

    This books makes you stay up late to read to the end, while not wanting it to end. Truly alien-thinking aliens, surprises that would seem contrived in other hands but they fit in here. Would make a great mini-series as it is one action scene after another--though it would need a 'mature' rating (as in dealing with actually mature themes rather than just gross).
