Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, one of the lowliest bees in a hive where work is paramount and worship of the Queen the only religion. But Flora is not like other bees. Her self-knowledge and curiosity make her a threat to the ways of her kin...but she may also be their only hope during a season that threatens the hive's very survival. Laline Paull delivers a totally weird and brilliantly imaginative chronicle based on observations of actual bees.

Six crew members wake into regenerated bodies after being murdered on a generation ship heading to a new planet. Their memories and logs from the last twenty-five years have been wiped, but they know this: One of them is the killer - and whoever it is may not even know it. This murder mystery is the literary equivalent of that scene in Butch Cassidy where he and Sundance leap off a cliff, swearing the whole way. A heart-pounding sci fi thriller.
