Review

Praise for Tomorrow's Kin

Washington Post Best New Science Fiction for Summer

Tomorrow’s Kin’s begins in a way that readers of her earlier writing and Sir Arthur C Clarke’s Childhood’s End will recognise―the arrival to Earth of aliens―but then, like the best of Clarke, transcends from this to something new and contemporary.”―SFF World

"A refreshingly original piece of science fiction."―Tor.com

“Kress mixes contemporary issues of isolationism and refugee status with classic SF first-contact tropes, threaded neatly with solid scientific theory and speculation.”―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A solid, riveting and fast-paced tale.”―RT Book Reviews (5 stars out of 5)

Praise for the Hugo Award-winning Yesterday's Kin

“Kress has proven that she can pack a huge amount of story into a small container, and here the author expertly explores one family’s experience of alien visitation.”―Library Journal

“Sparely constructed and cleverly resolved, Yesterday’s Kin provides everything readers need for an immersive plunge into a frightening, fascinating and inescapable predicament.”―Seattle Times

"Hard Science Fiction is a thing! And Nancy Kress blew this one completely out of the park."―Book Ink Reviews

"If you’re looking for a solid piece of hard SF, this looks like the start of an exciting new series."―Sci-Fi and Fantasy Review

"Engaging"―Kirkus Reviews

"Skillfully written."―Fantasy Book Cafe

“Nancy Kress delivers one of the strongest stories of the year to date.... As with all of Kress’s work, this is very nicely crafted, with well-paced prose that carries you through the story, complex human characters, a compelling and conflict-driven human story, a clever twist partway through, and an even cleverer twist at the end.”―Gardner Dozois, editor of The Year’s Best Science Fiction series

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Nancy Kress is the author of thirty-three books, including twenty-six novels, four collections of short stories, and three books on writing. Her fiction has won six Nebulas (for “Out of All Them Bright Stars,” “Beggars in Spain,” “The Flowers of Aulit Prison,” “Fountain of Age,” “After the Fall, Before the Fall, and During the Fall,”and “Yesterday’s Kin”), two Hugos (for “Beggars in Spain” and “The Erdmann Nexus”), a Sturgeon (for “The Flowers of Aulit Prison”), and a John W. Campbell Memorial Award (for PROBABILITY SPACE). Her work has been translated into Swedish, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Polish, Croatian, Korean, Lithuanian, Chinese, Romanian, Japanese, Russian, and Klingon, none of which she can read.

In addition to writing, Kress often teaches at various venues around the country and abroad, including a visiting lectureship at the University of Leipzig, a 2017 writing class in Beijing, and the annual intensive workshop Taos Toolbox, which she teaches every summer with Walter Jon Williams. For sixteen years, she was the “Fiction” columnist for WRITER’S DIGEST magazine, and has written three books about writing (see Bibliography).

Although she began by writing fantasy, Nancy currently writes science fiction, often about genetic engineering. Her most recent book, IF TOMORROW COMES (Tor, 2018), is the second in the YESTERDAY'S KIN trilogy, which began with her Nebula-winning novella. The third book, TERRAN TOMORROW, will be released by Tor in November, 2018. The series concerns a deadly epidemic, aliens who are not what they seem, and characters who must grow into positions they never expected to occupy on both a future Earth and a very different planet named World.

Kress is married to writer Jack Skillingstead. They live in Seattle with Cosette, the world’s most spoiled toy poodle.

EVENT NOTE: I do not have the details for upcoming events and this website won't let me post them without such details as &quot;starting minute,&quot; so I will just say here that I will be at the Science Fiction Worldcon in San Jose, August 16-19. I will also be Guest of Honor at Capclave in Washington D.C., September 28-30, 2018, and again at Foolscap in Seattle, February 1-3, 2019.
