About the Author:

Nancy Kress was born and raised in upstate New York, where she spent most of her childhood either reading or playing in the woods. She earned a bachelor's and master's degree in education, as well as an M.A. in English. While she was pregnant with the second of her two sons, she started writing fiction. She had never planned on becoming a writer, but staying at home full-time with infants left her time to experiment.

In 1990 she went full-time as an SF writer. The first thing she wrote in this new status was the novella version of Beggars In Spain, which won both the Hugo and the Nebula Award. She is the author of more than twenty books, including more than a dozen novels of science fiction and fantasy, as well as three story collections, and two books on writing. Of her most recent novels, Probability Space (Tor, 2002) won the John W. Campbell Award for Best SF novel. Her short fiction has appeared in all the usual places, garnering her one Hugo and three Nebula Awards. Her work has been translated into Swedish, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Japanese, Croatian, Lithuanian, Romanian, Greek, Hebrew, and Russian. She is also the monthly "Fiction" columnist for Writer's Digest Magazine and she teaches writing regularly at various places, including Clarion and The Writing Center in Bethesda, Maryland. She currently resides in Rochester, New York.

Review:

''Kress' sequel to Beggars in Spain fearlessly addresses a host of ethical quandaries while simultaneously relating a vivid tale of people trapped by their biological destinies.'' --Library Journal

''Takes an admirably complex look at controversial issues . . . [This] isn't merely an excellent and thoughtful work of science fiction but is also an important commentary on some of the key issues we'll be facing in the next century.'' --Publishers Weekly

''[A] plot that hums like a high-tension cable. The miracle is that this excitement is generated by readers' own moral confusion . . . Beggars and Choosers will terrify, delight, enrage, and engage.'' --School Library Journal

''Kress' work remains strongly character driven, an approach that in her hands raises social-speculation SF to about as high a level as one can reasonably expect.'' --Booklist
