Brother Termite by Patricia Anthony


He is a major figure in national and international affairs. He plays high-stakes political power games with the FBI and the CIA. He is responsible for many lives--and many deaths.

The President of the United States trusts his friendship and advice above all others. He is everything to those who surround him--player and pawn, friend and enemy, husband and father.

He's also an alien being from a far world, from another existence, and he has set his own agenda for the future of OUR world.

He is an alien ... and yet, he is only too human.

Critical Praise for Brother Termite:

"A highly accomplished piece of work."
--New York Times Book Review

"Chilling ... splendid characters and utterly convincing aliens ... unstoppable narrative momentum."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Engrossing entertainment."
-- Booklist

"Anthony has taken the alien invasion cliché and transformed it into a brilliant parody of the modern political thriller."
-- Library Journal

"Incisive political satire ... a rewarding read."
-- Publishers Weekly

"A genuinely great novel."
-- Locus Magazine

"Not since Octavia Butler's Exogenesis novels have I encountered writing so cool, precise, economical, and intelligent. Or aliens so alien."
-- Terry Bisson, author of Bears Discover Fire

"Superior science fiction--a wild, weird story in its own right that is also entertaining, gripping ... and very thought-provoking. Moves with the sureness of a ride in a luxury automobile. Anthony doesn't spoon-feed the reader--she takes charge ... inventive, smart, and funny ... [Anthony] tells a story in a style as bright and cool as blue argon lighting."
-- New York Review of Science Fiction

"A brilliantly effective psychological political thriller and creation of an alien mind."
-- Denver Post

"Heartbreakingly moving."
--San Francisco Examiner

About the Author

Patricia Anthony published her first science fiction novel in 1992 with Cold Allies, about the arrival of extraterrestrials in the midst of a 21st Century Third World War. This was followed by Brother Termite, Conscience of the Beagle, Happy Policeman, Cradle of Splendor, and God's Fires, each of which combined science fiction plots with other genres in unconventional ways. Several of her short-fiction works were republished in the 1998 collection Eating Memories. Her 1998 mainstream novel Flanders is the highly metaphysical story of an American sharpshooter in World War I.

Anthony's best-known and most critically acclaimed work is probably 1993's Brother Termite, a tale of political intrigue told from the perspective of the leader of extraterrestrials who have occupied the United States.
