The novella “Beggars in Spain” (one of my all-time favorites!) won both the Hugo and Nebula, became an iconic work of science fiction dealing with genetics and established Nancy as a major writer in the genre. The novella was subsequently turned into a novel which then spurred a number of sequels set in the same universe. This original multiple award-winning novella is Phoenix Pick’s “Book of the Month” for June 2015. Readers may download it for free or pay anything they wish (with a suggested retail price of $1.99).
Here’s what it’s about:
Leisha Camden is a genetically engineered “Sleepless.” Her ability to stay awake all the time has not only made her more productive, but the genetic modifications have also given the “Sleepless” a higher IQ and may even make them immortal. Are they the future of humanity? Or will the small community of “sleepless” be hunted down as freaks by a world that has grown wary of its newest creation?
