The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Nancy Kress - Blue Tyson

Nancy Kress is an author in multiple genres, but largely science fiction. She is a run-of-the-mill novelist who occasionally has produced something better in her 20 or so works, like the first Sleepless volume. However, she is one of the all-time best producers of short fiction. More of her novels are of interest than short stories such as the Probability books, or Crossfire and Crucible.

In her short stories, Art of War is a comparison of the former and the latter in two cultures in conflict. First Flight has a Space Cadet on display. Shiva In Shadow explores the fundamentals of existence in the galaxy.
