A Novella by

Hugo Best Novellette (nominee)
Nebula Awards Best Novella (nominee)
As in her Hugo and Nebula-award winning Beggars in Spain, Dancing on Air finds Nancy Kress once more exploring the moral ambiguities of genetic engineering that have become her hallmark. This novella-length chapbook combines an intriguing murder mystery, involving a reporter's investigation into the competitive world of professional ballet, with the thought-provoking science fiction we have come to expect from Nancy Kress. This story is among her finest work. BACK COVER: Like Walter Miller's "The Darfsteller," [Dancing on Air] follows the future of an artform through ethical quagmires. - Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine Every so often there comes a story which works the old magic that first drew me to the genre as a reader. Dancing on Air is one of those stories. - James Patrick Kelly From her novel An Alien Light to this novella, Dancing on Air, Nancy Kress has again and again made bizarre viewpoints utterly compelling. No matter how peculiar the future is that Kress imagines, her characters face it with human and humane feeling. She is a writer's writer. - Tony Daniel Nancy Kress is one of the best damn storytellers ever. - Jack McDevitt
