Product description


Praise for This Alien Shore

C. S. Friedman borrows some big ideas from writers like Cordwainer Smith, Frank Herbert, and Samuel R. Delaney, and runs with them. Instead of stumbling under the burden, she succeeds in making the material her own. --The New York Times

Friedman keeps her tale moving at a vigorous pace that's boosted through an abundance of well-chosen details.... It is likely to hold readers' interest tenaciously. --Publishers Weekly

Once again Ms. Friedman offers us great richness in both concept and detail, ingeniously weaving together two strong plotlines and piquant characters into a superior reading experience. --Romantic Times

A wide-ranging, action-packed space opera. This Alien Shore is guaranteed to entertain those who like to be swept up in an adventure with lots of characters, dangers, and revelations. --Science Fiction Chronicle

Concept and culture-building wise, This Alien Shore is brilliant. --Little Red Reviewer

In many ways, C.S. Friedman's work reminds me of William Gibson's--unique settings, complex and fascinating (though not necessarily likeable) characters, cool ideas and technology, a smart and savvy style. --Fantasy Literature

Friedman depicts a vast galaxy filled with diverse human kinds. --James Davis Nicoll

There is so much of interest here and rather than spend paragraph after paragraph describing it all, which I could easily do, I will simply tell you to read it. It is a great book and well worth your time. --Worlds Without End

About the Author

An acknowledged master of dark fantasy and science fiction alike, C.S. Friedman is a John W. Campbell award finalist, and the author of the highly acclaimed Coldfire Trilogy, New York Times Notable Book of the Year This Alien Shore, In Conquest Born, The Madness Season, The Wilding, The Magister Trilogy and the Dreamwalker series. Friedman worked for twenty years as a professional costume designer, but retired from that career in 1996 to focus on her writing. She lives in Virginia, and can be contacted via her website, www.csfriedman.com.
