Book Description HTML
NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... Ilika and his crew discover there are much harder jobs in the universe than flying a deep-space response ship, such as living to witness the end of your civilization. Even just as rescuers during a simulation, they find themselves deeply attached to creatures who no longer have a place to call home. Then the crew is sent to listen to a story of planetary transition told by the last two of their kind. The listeners find that the story catches up with them, and they become witnesses to a new transition, greater than the first. This book includes the short story "The Magic Needle" by Kathleen Tully, winner of the 2013-14 Nebador Writing Contest.
