In a heart-stopping interstellar odyssey that takes her from Earth's rebel enclaves, to the decadent court of an exotic lunar colony, and the endangered frontier world of Demeter, Kyra Davis plays a crucial role in the struggle to preserve freedom. There under the distant light of Alpha Centauri, Kyra undergoes an awesome transformation to insure the survival of humanity's descendants among the far-flung stars. Blending the cutting-edge themes of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and biotechnology with classic science fiction storytelling, Poul Anderson's Harvest of Stars is a towering achievement by one of science fiction's most honored writers. With colorful characters as appealing as Robert Heinlein's Friday and Lazarus Long, a future history as compelling as Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" series, and a cosmic vision as astonishing as Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End, Harvest of Stars confirms Poul Anderson's place in the SF pantheon beside the field's most beloved authors.
