Midwest Book Review




A blend of strong plot and technological insight.

In most science fiction novels the challenges and impossibilities of inter-species communication is overcome by the presence of a "universal translator" — or just not mentioned. So, it's intriguing to see a novel based around communication challenges — and presents a story surrounding the Guild of Xenolinguists, which helps sentient species overcome cross-communication challenges. A Guildmember is trained for years in both linguistics and culture — and these short stories center around Guild challenges and achievements, offering up detailed and complex story lines perfect for any serious science fiction collection seeking a blend of strong plot and technological insight.
