Widely acclaimed and wildly intelligent, the fiction of Patricia Anthony has been praised as "highly accomplished" by the New York Times, and "exciting" by the Washington Post. Now Anthony unleashes the most ambitious, most spellbinding novel of her skyrocketing career, exploring the human need for everything "alien" to come from somewhere far away-when the alien thoughts and desires that frighten us most come from deep within. A very powerful, very human novel from an astronomical talent...

Cradle of Splendor
Brazil's first manned space launch goes horribly wrong. The boosters sputter, and fail. The world holds its breath, expecting the rocket to plummet to earth. But it doesn't, It shoots into orbit-with no boosters, seemingly no propulsion at all. Impossible... but the world saw it happen.

Now the world wants to know how it was done..
