The concluding, and most powerful, volume in an SF masterpiece, the White Queen trilogy....Now Jones concludes the tale of the Aleutian invasion in "Phoenix Cafe", a hip, dark, violent novel that answers the questions, What does it feel like to be colonized by superior aliens, and what is left for you after they have exploited you and prepare to depart?

Now, in Phoenix Cafe, Jones concludes the story another hundred years on, as the Aleutians prepare to leave both Earth and a humanity transformed in strange and sometimes unpleasant ways by two hundred years of alien exploitation. The Aleutians have the space drive. But what has humanity gained or lost, and who will pick up the pieces? This is a novel of politics, economics, sexual identity, and the fate of humanity.
