Gilman is the author of several science fiction/fantasy novels, including Halfway Human. Her work has been included in Best of volumes and has been nominated for Nebula and Hugo Awards. Her suspenseful new novel follows Thora, a futuristic Cassandra who has been banished from the Twenty Planets of human civilization after her delusionary visions foment rebellion on the planet Orem. But when a scientific expedition to a newly discovered habitable planet ends in a killing and a disappearance, Thora’s rantings begin to look more like truth.
