PRETERNATURAL³ by Margaret Wander Bonanno
Released: Oct. 1, 2002

"An existential tour-de-force by any standard."
Third in the—trilogy? maybe—featuring SF writer Karen Rohmer Guerreri, who, at first, imagined she was being contacted by telepathic jellyfish called S.oteri, only to find that it was true (Preternatural, 1996) and then dreamed up another alien race who could travel through tunnels in space and time (Preternatural Too: Gyre, 2000).

PRETERNATURAL TOO: GYRE by Margaret Wander Bonanno
Released: April 1, 2000

"Impressively wrought and wonderfully entertaining, yet not as fraught with significance as some commentators seem to think."
Sequel to Preternatural (1996), Bonanno's playful alien-contact saga wherein midlist science fiction writer Karen Guerrerri imagines she's being contacted by telepathic group-minded jellyfish called the S.oteri—only to find that it's all true . . . maybe. Read full book review >
PRETERNATURAL by Margaret Wander Bonanno
Released: Dec. 1, 1996

"The real obstacle is the seemingly interminable twiddling between setup and payoff."
Mid-list science fiction writer Karen Guerreri imagines that her characters talk to her as she writes; her latest opus, Preternatural, is being dictated by the S.oteri, group-minded omniscient, omnitemporal, telepathic jellyfish. Read full book review >
OTHERWISE by Margaret Wander Bonanno
Released: Aug. 18, 1993

"Fans of Bonanno's Star Trek novels are likely to be bored by this unhurried, nonlinear narrative, but more adventurous readers may find the warmth and occasional flashes of wit here much to their taste."
The third in Bonanno's Others series (The Others, 1990; OtherWhere, 1991) continues the story of the conflict between a belligerent race calling itself the People and the pacifistic, scientifically advanced Others, with whom they share their planet. Read full book review >
OVERWHERE by Margaret Wander Bonanno
Released: Nov. 1, 1991

"And the real question is how much longer Bonanno can keep twiddling before some sort of plot rears its ugly head."
Sequel to The Others (1990), Bonanno's chronicle of race warfare between the pacifistic, scientifically advanced, sharing- caring ``Others'' and the ignorant, brutish, violent, egotistical- creative ``People.'' Now, the People believe that they have wiped out the Others; actually, a shaken, ten thousand strong Other remnant sails secretly toward the polar regions in search of new lodgings.
