About the Author:

Sherwood Smith is the author of a number of science fiction and fantasy novels, including the Wren series for Young Adults, the Exordium novels (with Dave Trowbridge), the recent Atlantis Endgame, a novel of the Time Traders series (with Andre Norton), Solar Queen novels (also with Andre Norton), and many others. She lives south of Los Angeles.

From Publishers Weekly:

Following in the footsteps of such eminent SF authors as James White (The First Protector) and Fred Saberhagen (The Arrival), Smith contributes a taut and gripping tie-in novel to the TV series from the late creator of Star Trek. Cecilia Robin, a southern California fourth-grade teacher, has reason to worry when the alien Taelons take an interest in her. After all, the Taelons have a habit of implanting CVIs, devices that bring about disturbing behavioral changes, in the base of the neck of uncooperative humans. Not one to make trouble, Cece refuses a former student's request to join a splinter group of the Resistance and take part in an assassination attempt. Soon she's both a target for the rebels and the Taelons, and is on the run. Enter the resourceful Augur to protect her, but even he can't tell her who used computer networks to vaporize her car. In their flight across the country, Cece and Augur discover that the Taelons are aware of the assassination attempt, awaiting an excuse to expand and make acceptable the implantation of CVIs in college students. The author, while good at fast-moving action, also provides some food for thought in her depiction of how a Web-like computer system might work within a "benevolent" totalitarian society. Star Trek fans should be more than satisfied. (Nov. 16)novels, Derelict for Trade and A Mind for Trade.
