about

Planetary surveyors Fin and Carson battle hostile terrain, bureaucratic red tape, and renegade "planet crashers" in this latest novella by the talented author of Doomsday Book. Willis continues to demonstrate her endless versatility in this archly written satire, which is both a love story and a shameless expose of the dark side of political correctness.
Connie Willis lives in Greeley, Colorado, with her family.

From Our Editors

Wry and witty science fiction. Carson and Findriddy, the famous planetary surveyors mapping out the planetoid Boohte, have their hands full with base member C.J., ambitious scout Ev (C.J.'s latest conquest), and Bult--the indigenous guide whose chief interest is in levying fines for destruction of the planet's surface.

Employee Review

Finriddy and Carson have been surveying planets for years. It's only when Evelyn, a specialist in mating customs, joins the expedition that problems arise. Although this book from Hugo-winning author Willis is based in a science fiction background, it is pure relationship analysis. Not a bad read, but I prefer my analysis more veiled -- and I also wanted more science, perhaps more on the indigenous species we encounter.
