Yanked! (David Brin's Out of Time, Book One)
Avon/Eos (paperback, 246 pages, $4.99/$6.99 US)
Publication date: June 8, 1999

The start of an unusual YA adventure series which pairs the talents of David Brin (author of The Postman and The Uplift Trilogy) and Nancy Kress (Beggars in Spain, Beaker's Dozen). "It's 2345. The future needs heroes! They must reach back in time to find them. What if they come for you? In 2345 there is no war, no pollution, no disease, no crime -- but utopia has a price..."
Review by Rich Horton
[Cover] Maximum Light
Tor hard cover
The latest SF bio-thriller from the author of the Hugo Award-winning Beggars in Spain and Oaths and Miracles. "In a near-future America when pollutants have left eighty percent of the population sterile, genetic manipulation of the human genome is a serious crime. But some people will resort to almost anything to have a child." (I have two children, and you don't want to know what I'm ready to resort to.)

The much anticipated conclusion to the Beggars trilogy (Beggars in Spain, Beggars and Choosers).
