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