Picnic on Paradise

A novel by

Nebula Awards Best Novel (nominee)


Praise for this book

"An extraordinary book!" - Poul Anderson

"Picnic on Paradise is the only science fiction novel I've read in a single sitting in the past ten years. The tough little heroine Alyx grabbed my interest in the first sentence and never let go, any more than she ever lets go of her job of herding a fascinating bunch of future tourists across a winter-resort planet which is the battlefield of an eerie war and glitters with peril. Here is adventure, not romanticized, but as it really is: rough, dangerous and dirty, a-bristle with the unexpected, though with moments of high humor and surprising beauty." - Fritz Leiber
