THIS ALIEN SHORE
A C.S. Friedman novel about an unusually talented outcast girl trying to make her way through a complex, hostile universe full of bizarre aliens and double-dealing humans. Michael played up the "everyone is out to get me" aspect of the story and enjoyed creating the offbeat characters in the background.
This Alien Shore
Sheltered all her life in a corporate satellite in Earth's outer orbit, Jamisia must face the truth about her origins and her role in the power struggle between the Guerans who dominate intergalactic transportation and the rest of Earth's far-flung and genetically mutated colonies who are trying to break the Guera Guild's monopoly.
