Winner of the first James Tiptree, Jr.. Memorial Award for SF about gender issues, White Queen is a dazzling vision of an out-of-control future from the author of Divine Endurance.

It's 2038. Japan has been destroyed by geologic catastrophe. The global economy is in chaos. And Johnny Guglioli, a young wirehead cyberjournalist infected with a very deadly computer virus, follows the trail of a group of extraterrestrials who have landed somewhere in West Africa.

But when Johnny finally finds the aliens, they're far different from anything he could have imagined: Mysterious. Telepathic. Nearly immortal. And driven by a dark imperative that may cost humanity its future.

Review:

It's 2038 and the earth has been devastated by tectonic shifts accompanied by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The U.S. has undergone a socialist revolution, retro-viruses are rampant and most technology relies on a powerful organic "clay" instead of microprocessors. When aliens land near American-exile Johnny Guglio's adopted African home, Braemar Wilson, a cutthroat reporter, befriends him to get a jump on the story. Though no one knows the alien's intent, White Queen, an anti-alien group, begins working to undermine human trust. Even as ambassadors from both worlds talk, Braemar and Johnny must work together find themselves in a unique position to uncover the truth. The book won the 1991 James Tiptree Jr. Award.
