Survival Survival by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
Dr. Mackenzie Connor wants nothing more than to use her biology degree to study the salmon runs every year. Norcoast Salmon Research Facility sits at an ideal juncture of river and sea, and is host to a jumble scientists and graduate students. It seems like the last place on Earth for anything more exciting than whale pods to appear. All of that changes with the sudden arrival of the first Dhryn to visit the planet, with a mission: to meet the respected Dr. Mackenzie Connor to share the archaeological theories that are dangerous to spread on his home planet.

In the Company of Others In the Company of Others by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by James Seidman
Would-be colonists have flooded space stations meant as transfer points when Earth discovers the planets have become contaminated. The Quill, small alien filaments carried by some for their relaxing effect, have somehow morphed into a deadly threat. The stations have turned into terribly crowded permanent homes for stranded humans, wondering what Quill are and what happened to the promised land of the terraformed planets.

Ties of Power Ties of Power by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by James Seidman
Sequel to A Thousand Words for Stranger, this novel starts with Sira and Morgan in self-imposed exile from the Clan. But Sira cannot escape quite so easily the ramifications of being the most powerful Clanswoman ever. She discovers this when she is the victim of a surprise attack. Wounded and weak, she instructs Morgan to go off after her attackers, flooding his mind with her own rage. Thereafter, and throughout most of this book, Morgan is not a very likeable character: with his mind altered by Sira's anger, he can barely control himself.

No Limits No Limits and Packing Fraction by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by Jean-Louis Trudel
Can SF be used to spark interest in science? No Limits is a textbook built around the stories collected in Packing Fraction. All the stories appear in both, but they are extensively annotated and analyzed in No Limits, which also provides additional information on the authors and pointers to related SF stories. The book uses SF to stimulate fresh and creative thinking about science.

Beholder's Eye Beholder's Eye by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by James Seidman

The Conjurer Princess A Thousand Words For Stranger by Julie E. Czerneda
reviewed by Jim Seidman
Jim finds the prose of this new writer amazingly competent, as she spins a tale of the far future -- where aliens and humans mingle on a distant planet, and the mysterious mental powers of a people known only as "The Clan" have shaped a very unique society.
