Reading the Bones by Sheila Finch

Format: Softcover, 197 pages

Publisher: Tachyon Publications, 2003

ISBN: 1892391082

A dissolute linguist, a cosseted debutante and a strangely silent child are running for their lives - trapped in the violent confluence of three alien races: Frehti, Human & Venatixi.

At the heart of a complex mystery of language and culture, biology and revolution, only profound sacrifice can ensure survival.

The Xenolinguist story series are fast-paced, gripping explorations of cross-cultural communication, as well as perennial fan favorites. The Nebula award-winning novella Reading the Bones has now been expanded to novel length, following xenolinguist Ries Danyo, and sisters Lita and Jilan Patel to their pivotal role in shaping the future of the Frehti.

Sheila Finch was born in London, studied Medieval Literature and Linguistics at Indiana University, and currently teaches creative writing at El Camino College in Torrance, California.
