Pallas (Book I of the Ngu Family Saga)

Prometheus Award Winner

Ex-U.S.-Senator Gibson Altman rules the prison colony where everyone is expected to live by rules that govern every aspect of their lives.

The inhabitants of the experimental colony survive in a society plagued by crime, corruption and despair, toiling endlessly at tasks they are appointed to. Altman lives a life of luxury, ruling the lives of the souls trapped within his experiment and brooking no opposition to mandate.

However, Pallas, the terraformed asteroid, is also home to Curringer, a society in stark contrast to Altman's prison. It is a community where individual freedoms are championed and men and women are free to live as they please.

Emerson Ngu escapes from Altman's prison colony and becomes a hero of Curringer. Altman is driven by a deep hatred of Emerson and his triumph and will do anything to get his revenge on him. But in the process will he also destroy his own daughter and even the world of Pallas?

The Phoenix Pick free eBook for October is
Georgia On My Mind & Other Stories by Charles Sheffield

Sheffield was a physicist and hard SF writer. I've read little of his work, but he's a particular favorite of a good friend of mine.

To get the book, go into the catalog page at http://www.ppickings.com/, scroll to Sheffield's section and click on the "free book" link. This month's code is 9991264.

Quote:
Includes the NEBULA- & HUGO-winning title novelette.

A collection of some of the finest short stories penned by a master of hard science fiction, this anthology includes Charles Sheffield’s highly acclaimed novelette, Georgia On My Mind.

Georgia On My Mind won both the Hugo and Nebula when originally published in 1993. The accompanying stories were written by the author between 1987 and 1994.

“Sheffield, a physicist, proves to be one of the most imaginative, exciting talents to appear on the SF scene in recent years.”—Publishers Weekly

Yes, I got it.

BTW, I have everything from Sheffield that is available from Fictionwise, so I probably have the stories already. In my opinion, "Georgia on my mind" fully deserves its Hugo and Nebula and I strongly recommend it.

Bizarre. I just tried it again and still got the Attansio page.

I finally did a force refresh on every step and managed to get the new book!.
