Joan Slonczewski, author of Daughter of Elysium, and A Door into Ocean, is one of the field's leading writers of biological SF. Her new novel, The Children Star, is an ambitious adventure set on the planet Prokaryon -- a world that is only habitable to humans who have been genetically altered. But disaster is close at hand when a greedy corporation attempts to alter the planet's ecosystem in an attempt to make it habitable for all humans. Spectacular and plausible world-building fun from an SF writer to watch.

Praise for The Children Star

"The world-building is magnificently detailed; the characters are done with deftness and wit."--Chicago Sun-Times on Daughter of Elysium

"By the time the conflict she introduces in Part One has moved to center stage, you not only know the antagonist intimately, you care passionately about the outcome."--New York Times Book Review on A Door Into Ocean

"Slonczewski, a biologist, effectively describes a scary new world, filled with quaint-talking humans and primitive ways, whose fate is not resolved until a young female embarks on a quest that reveals the true nature of the aliens."--The Wall Street Journal on The Wall Around Eden
