"Trang is a clever return to the social sci-fi of yesteryear."—The New Podler Review of Books. Award-winning writer Mary Sisson brings you the tale of Philippe Trang, the first human diplomat assigned to a mysterious alien station. Haunted by a recent mission that went very wrong, Trang realizes that not everyone on Earth would like his mission to succeed—and the aliens have some nefarious agendas of their own. As he tries desperately to keep everyone from killing each other (not to mention him), strange forces threaten to destroy his very mind! If you like character-driven stories that feature a blend of drama, tragedy, comedy, and action—such as the works of Joss Whedon or Charles Stross’ Laundry Files novels—and you don't mind some really bad language, read Trang today! (107,900 words/370 pages long.)

Editorial Reviews

David Drazul
Sisson's strengths lie in characterization and dialogue. All of her characters, even the aliens, have distinct traits which make them unique..... This is a dialogue heavy novel, and the conversations feel authentic.... Trang is a virtual minefield of F bombs and other profanity. However, at no point did I feel it was gratuitous.... Trang is a clever return to the social sci-fi days of yesteryear. Convincing dialogue and strong characterization drive the story....
Keith West
If you enjoy anthropological sf, and you aren't put off by the language, this one might be for you.... Once again, an indie author has put together a book that is essentially error free.... While anthropological science fiction is not my first choice of subgenre (that would be space opera or hard science), I enjoyed this book. It held my interest, made me care about what happened to the characters, and kept me reading. Which is what I want from a book.
