FLANDERS by Patricia Anthony
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 1, 1998

"Well, it isn't; and attempting to market it as such helps this frustratingly underappreciated author not at all: Science fiction's loss would be the literary mainstream's gain."
From the author of God's Fires (1997), etc., an epistolary novel whose action takes place between March 2 and December 23, 1916. Read full book review >
GOD'S FIRES by Patricia Anthony
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 1, 1997

"Whether tragedy or black farce, Anthony's thought-provoking and unforgettable story grows inevitably out of its impeccable historical context, with power enough to reach out across the centuries and disturb the present."
Alien-contact yarn set somewhere near 1667 (Anthony doesn't actually tell us) in Portugal, a country still implacably dominated by the Inquisition: from the cutting-edge author of Cradle of Splendor (1996), etc. The action takes place over a 13-day period. Read full book review >
CRADLE OF SPLENDOR by Patricia Anthony
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: April 1, 1996

"Mesmerizing, full of terrible insights, deeply disturbing, and quite unforgettable, confirming Anthony as the powerhouse of 1990s science fiction."
Anthony's new venture (Happy Policeman, 1994, etc.) is set in a near-future Brazil whose president, Ana Maria Bonfim, has engineered a social and economic miracle. Read full book review >

CONSCIENCE OF THE BEAGLE by Patricia Anthony
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Nov. 1, 1993

BROTHER TERMITE by Patricia Anthony
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 1, 1993

"Chilling, memorable work, with splendid characters and utterly convincing aliens, set forth with unstoppable narrative momentum."
Another near-future venture in aliens-among-us realism, from the author of the highly impressive Cold Allies (1992). Read full book review >
COLD ALLIES by Patricia Anthony
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 1, 1993

"Gripping and realistic—despite an initial scenario that doesn't add up, rather nebulous aliens, and an overdose of military acronyms: an assured, imaginative, and distinctive debut."
In Anthony's near/medium future, greenhouse effects have altered global climates: Florida lies under water (but not, apparently, Washington, D.C.); much of the Midwest is now desert; fuel shortages are acute; and famine is endemic. Read full book review >
