“One of the best trips I ever took was to Alaska. This book is a chance to visit again, with a variety of fascinating viewpoints, and without even packing a suitcase! Led to it by one favorite author, walking away with several new favorites.”

About the Author

Author David Marusek writes science fiction full time in his low-maintenance cabin near Fairbanks, Alaska. According to Publisher's Weekly, “Marusek's writing is ferociously smart, simultaneously horrific and funny, as he forces readers to stretch their imaginations and sympathies." His work has appeared in Playboy, Nature, MIT Technology Review, Asimov’s, and other periodicals and anthologies and has been translated into ten languages. His two published novels and clutch of short stories have won the Theodore Sturgeon and Endeavour awards and earned numerous nominations. He is currently at work on a novel about love, faith, and space alien invasion in the Alaskan bush.

At age twenty-one, Deb Vanasse was dropped by a bush pilot on a gravel runway in middle of the Alaska wilderness. No roads, no houses, no cars, no people—only a winding brown slough and tundra spread flat as the prairie. She had come not for adventure but to live, an isolating but enriching experience that inspires her work. Between her mountain home and a glacier-based cabin, she continues to enjoy Alaska’s wild places. Deemed by Library Journal to be “one of Alaska’s leading storytellers,” Deb is the author of sixteen books.
