Jackal Bird cover

    As richly evocative and endlessly inventive as anything by Ursula K. LeGuin, Jackal Bird marks the debut of an important new voice in science fiction.
    Spider Robinson

On the new world of Isurus, the remnants of indigenous life give way to the terraforming colonists. The children play complex war games, mimicking the conflicts of past generations that struggled for power, and discover the painful reality of war. But these dangerous games are good preparation for the violent times ahead.
