The Hugo Award-winning author of numerous best-sellers, Charles Stross crafts tales that push the limits of the genre. In Saturn's Children, Freya is an obsolete android concubine in a society where humans haven't existed for hundreds of years. A rigid caste system keeps the Aristos, a vindictive group of humanoids, well in control of the lower, slave-chipped classes. So when Freya offends one particularly nasty Aristo, she's forced to take a dangerous courier job off-planet.More
"Stross takes a plot device common to mystery novels and turns it into one of the most stylishly imaginative robot tales ever penned." (Booklist)
"Good fun... Heinlein himself would've liked this." (San Diego Union-Tribune)
