A Nebula Award and Campbell Award finalist for Best Novel from the multi-award winning SF master Jack McDevitt. Fifth in the acclaimed Academy series.
Jack McDevitt is a former naval officer, taxi driver, English teacher, and motivational trainer, and is now a full-time writer. Eleven of his novels have been Nebula finalists, and SEEKER won the award in 2007. In 2015 Jack won the Robert A. Heinlein Award, given an author of outstanding published works in science fiction and technical writings that inspire the human exploration of space. McDevitt was selected as the winner in recognition of his body of work, which includes over 21 novels and 81 short stories. McDevitt lives in Georgia with his wife Maureen.
McDevitt's energetic, character-driven prose serves double duty by exploring Earth's future political climate and forecasting the potential dangers awaiting humanity among the stars * Booklist * Surprising and involving * Kirkus Reviews * An interesting futuristic space odyssey filled with a delightful twist * Midwest Book Review * Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke -- Stephen King
