Staff Picks: Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear

It’s Locus’s 2019 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!

Liz Bourke selects Ancestral Night by Elizabeth Bear. Russell Letson describes it as “a big book (with a promise of more bigness to come – the title page says it is ‘White Space Book 1’) crammed with a variety of SF motifs and tropes and furniture items: space operatics, interstellar civilization, Big (Variably Smart) Objects, alien encounters, deep galactic history, artificial intelligences, and neural/physical enhancements for the meat-based characters.”

You can read Russell’s review online or in the February 2019 issue of Locus.
