The final book in the thrilling hard-SF first-contact trilogy based on the Nebula Award–winning novella Yesterday's Kin The diplomatic mission from Earth to World ended in disaster, as the Earth's scientists discovered that the Worlders were not the scientifically advanced culture they believed. Though they brought a limited quantity of the vaccine against the deadly spore cloud, there was no way to make enough to vaccinate more than a few dozen, and the Earth scientists and surviving diplomats fled back to Earth. Once home, after the twenty-eight-year gap caused by their transit through space, they find an Earth changed almost beyond recognition. In the aftermath of the spore cloud plague, the human race has been reduced to a few million isolated survivors. The knowledge brought back by Marianne Jenner and her staff may not be enough to turn the tide of ongoing biological warfare.

Nancy Kress
Amerikansk forfatterinde som fik trykt sin første novelle I 1976. Hendes første tre romaner var fantasy, men efter at hun havde skrevet dem har hun mest holdt sig til SF. I 1991 skrev hun novellen "Beggars in Spain". Historien vandt både Hugo og Nebula prisen det år. Og senere udvidede Kress novellen til en roman. Bogen handler om en gruppe mennesker som ikke længere har brug for at sove og som derfor kan få meget mere ud af deres liv, på mere end én måde. Der endte med at blive en trilogi ud af bogen for siden kom "Beggars and Choosers" og "Beggars Ride".
