Mindscape : a novel
Hairston, Andrea.
Adult Fiction HAIRSTO

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

For over 100 years, the extraterrestrial phenomenon known as The Barrier has divided Earth into warring political zones, limiting contact and ending hope for a united planet. Under the leadership of Celestina, a treaty now exists to end the interzonal wars and provide for cooperation among the various zones. When Celestina is assassinated on the eve of the treaty's ratification, it falls to her prot?g?e Elleni, one of the few individuals who can cross the Barrier, to continue working for change and unity. African American playwright Hairston's first novel blends speculative science with socially aware fiction to create a panoramic story that is at once personally relevant and philosophically significant. The author's lush prose and multicultural background make this a strong addition to most sf collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
