Nebula Award Winner

A struggling linguist, a sheltered debutante, and a strangely silent child are running for their lives, trapped in the violent confluence of three species, only one of which is human.

The Xenolinguist stories are fast-paced, gripping explorations of cross-cultural communication as well as perennial fan favorites. The Nebula Award winning novella Reading the Bones has now been expanded to novel length, following xenolinguist Ries Danyo and sisters Lita and Jilan Patel to their pivotal roles in shaping the future of the Frehti.

About the Author:

Sheila Finch is the author of more than seven books, including Reading the Bones>/i>, Infinity’s Web, and Birds. She is the winner of a Nebula Award and Compton Crook Award. She studied Medieval Literature and Linguistics at Indiana University. Finch is recently retired from her post as a creative writing teacher at El Camino College but continues to work with her former students.

Review:

This short novel is expanded from one of her stories, a Nebula Award winning novella, and the result is her best novel to date.”
SF Chronicle

Reading the Bones [the novella] combines the best elements of the previous Xenolinguist stories. From the theoretical and abstract elements of linguistics to the characteristically brutal and savage violence marking several of the earlier pieces, all emotionally and artistically capped by the powerful denouement involving the redemption of the main character, Ries Danyo.”
David Truesdale
