Synopses & Reviews
Winner of the first James Tiptree, Jr.. Memorial Award for SF about gender issues, White Queen
is a dazzling vision of an out-of-control future from the author of Divine Endurance
It's 2038. Japan has been destroyed by geologic catastrophe. The global economy is in chaos. And Johnny Guglioli, a young wirehead cyberjournalist infected with a very deadly computer virus, follows the trail of a group of extraterrestrials who have landed somewhere in West Africa.
But when Johnny finally finds the aliens, they're far different from anything he could have imagined: Mysterious. Telepathic. Nearly immortal. And driven by a dark imperative that may cost humanity its future.
"A flamboyant, wildly imaginative and deeply moving novel about (of all things) the aliens among us."--The Washington Post
"Here cyberpunk finally meets Ursula K. Le Guin."--Starlog
"One of the key novels of this decade. Get it now!"--Time Out
