Editor reviews

Science fiction author Sarah Zettel is known for her characterizations of alien beings, and in the epic interplanetary tale of The Quiet Invasion, one of those aliens gets his own voice. The points of view in the novel alternate between human and Venusian, allowing for stunning diversity in outlook. How do the colonizers on Venus see the earthlings who seek to destroy them preemptively? It's fascinating to hear their outsider - way outsider - view on the first contact.
Teresa DeBerry commands a stunning array of accents, both human and exotic. It's a challenge for a performer to capture the peculiar prose of an extraterrestrial race, but DeBerry brands each character with unique vocal qualities.
