Reviews

"A strong, striking look at a possible future, and the courage that will allow us to survive it." -Laura Anne Gilman, author of Heart of Briar and Soul of Fire


Praise for Sea Change

"Kress wisely keeps her global catastrophe on a human scale, eschewing superheroic action for tense realism. This urgent, deeply satisfying story is as tenacious and inspiring as its heroine."
--Publishers Weekly

"Kress writes a brilliantly imagined near future complete with false identities and analog spycraft mixed into an aggressively digital world in which greenhouses hiding GMO carrots are as vulnerable as missile bases, "drivie." houses cruise unassisted down streets, and disinformation campaigns blaze on social media.."
--Booklist

A Foreword Book of the Day
"Sharp, spare, and journalistic."
--Foreword

"Nancy Kress' Sea Change novella shows that she's still the master of biological disruption and human insight."
--Amazing Stories

"A realistic climate fiction with superb plot and memorable characters. It actually reads like a Hollywood thriller!"
--Strange Horizons

"This new work of fiction from Nebula Award winning author Nancy Kress, Sea Change (Tachyon) is a riveting climate-change techno-thriller."
--Environmental Magazine, "What We're Reading Now"

20 2020 Sci-Fi Books to Read Based on Your Favorite Star Trek Character "Character: B'Elanna Torres. Renata/Caroline Denton is a lawyer and operative in an underground science organization whose research could save the world. B'Elanna should enjoy the who-done-it turn the book takes when a spy infiltrates the group and only Renata can discover who it is. "
--StarTrek.com, the official Star Trek website

"Another excellent, fast-paced read from one of speculative fiction's most consistent voices."
--Christopher East

"5/5 stars. Sea Change, a forthcoming novella by acclaimed writer Nancy Kress, is everything I love about speculative fiction. The story has a compelling near-future setting, is full of smart characters with sharply written dialogue, and is so thematically rich and progressive."
--Back Shelf Books

"A strong, striking look at a a possible future, and the courage that will allow us to survive it."
--Laura Anne Gilman, author of Heat of Briar and Soul of Fire

"Sea Change is like liquid nitrogen ice cream--a chilling treat. Right next door to the future, filled with dark wit--a fine addition to Kress's work."
--Greg Bear, author of Eon and Take Back the Sky

"Nancy Kress is one of the best science-fiction writers working today. Her use of science is tricky and thought-provoking, her command of fiction sharp and full of feeling."
--Kim Stanley Robinson, author of The Years of Rice and Salt

"Nobody is better at destroying the world--see one of my favorite novellas, the multi-award-winning After the Fall, Before the Fall, During the Fall--but here Nancy Kress dives into the science of genetically modified plants and shows us how we just may need them to save the planet. And this brilliant, thoughtful story is also a page-turner! I don't know about you, but a thriller about a fear-mongering, anti-science government and the smart, brave people resisting it was exactly the story I needed right now."
--Daryl Gregory, award-winning writer of Spoonbenders

"Kress brilliantly weaves together two halves of a bio-thriller about GMOs and climate change that blooms logically from our immediate past and into one possible catastrophic near future. What's even more impressive is how she warns us about the dangers of GMOs on one hand, and teaches us about their wonderous advantages on the other. It's science fiction and it's not science fiction, and that's what's scary about this novella. Highly recommended."
--Patrick Swenson, author of The Ultra Thin Man

"This taut, suspenseful near-future ecothriller combines a frighteningly plausible ecological/economic collapse scenario with genuine human emotion. A winner!"
--David D. Levine, author of Arabella of Mars

"In a word, fantastic. Ms. Kress has crafted a brilliant and frighteningly realistic near future world"
--Disciples of Boltax
