9780345452382: Ammonite

Change or die. These are the only options available on the planet Jeep. Centuries earlier, a deadly virus shattered the original colony, killing the men and forever altering the few surviving women. Now, generations after the colony has lost touch with the rest of humanity, a company arrives to exploit Jeep–and its forces find themselves fighting for their lives. Terrified of spreading the virus, the company abandons its employees, leaving them afraid and isolated from the natives. In the face of this crisis, anthropologist Marghe Taishan arrives to test a new vaccine. As she risks death to uncover the women’s biological secret, she finds that she, too, is changing–and realizes that not only has she found a home on Jeep, but that she alone carries the seeds of its destruction. . . .

Ammonite is an unforgettable novel that questions the very meanings of gender and humanity. As readers share in Marghe’s journey through an alien world, they too embark on a parallel journey of fascinating self-exploration.

Review:

In Ammonite, the 1994 James Tiptree Jr. Award winner, the attempts to colonize the planet Jeep have uncovered a selective virus that kills all men and all but a few women. The remaining women undergo changes that enable them to communicate with one another and the planet itself, and give to birth to healthy, genetically diverse children. Marguerite Angelica Taishan is an anthropologist who realizes this phenomena and makes the decision to give herself up to the planet to uncover its mysteries.

From the Publisher:

This first novel is one of the best books I've ever acquired and edited. What was most impressive about it was the minimal amount of editorial work and copyediting work it needed--it arrived in our offices in publishable form and just needed a few editorial comments from me, and a few commas and such from the copyeditor, to send it on its way. For a first novel, that's extremely rare (as well as extremely enjoyable for the editor!). Nicola Griffith has been a great writer from the start. Even with the pulpy cover we put on the book when we first published it, featuring what seemed to be a metallic jellybean rather than a spaceship, Ammonite went on to win a Lambda Award and the Tiptree Award for best novel dealing with issues of gender. It got rave reviews from Ursula K. Le Guin, Kim Stanley Robinson, and other renowned writers, and a great review in the New York Times as well. As a young editor, I was really proud of this one, and I still recommend it as thinking-person's SF to any friends or acquaintances interested in the genre.

                                        --Ellen Key Harris, Editor, Del Rey Books

"A knock-out first novel" --Ursula K. Le Guin

"A marvelous blend of high adventure and mind-boggling social speculation--it marks the arrival of Nicola Griffith as a new sf star for the 90s." --Kim Stanley Robinson

"A noteworthy first novel...A powerful story of connection, allegiance, and obligation." --Vonda N. McIntyre
