Free eBook: “Rogue Queen” by L. Sprague de Camp

Phoenix Pick continues their free eBook promotion this month with Rogue Queen by L. Sprague de Camp!

About the Book:

Rogue Queen is a ground-breaking novel by L. Sprague de Camp that was one of the first science fiction books to deal with sexual themes, paving the way for more daring works by future authors.

Part of the Viagens Interplanetarias series, the story takes place on a planet circling the star Lalande 21185, also known as Ormazd. When humans arrive on the planet they find a hive-like society with a hyper-fertile queen being serviced by male drones.

All the other females of the species are infertile, or so it is believed. However, when one of the worker females rebels she discovers that the workers’ infertility is largely a result of the diet they follow

    The references to “The Crystal Empire” in this post’s title and first sentence should be replaced with “Rogue Queen”.

  2. One of my favorite series.I wish NESFA would compile these into hardcovers. I know Fred would buy them, too…
