KurtisP385XL47Ruth: Game Changer. Prodigal daughter. Spy.
The Cyber entities control a peaceful but static human galaxy according to strict WorldPlans. Then they detect unsanctioned developments on the low-tech planet Poindros. They force rebellious Ruth Kurtis to leave the bright lights of Casino to return to her fundamentalist Poindran homeworld as their secret agent to investigate possible Changers. For reluctant Agent Kurtis, the Cybers' threat of the memory-erasing Steps of Healing would be less dangerous than facing the repression and simmering angers she escaped as a teenager. But Ruth won't run from this fight.
The Cybers have calculated all the odds. Except they've just unleashed a wild card.

I hope you enjoy this first in the "Cybers Wild Card" series, my first novel and originally published by Berkley/Ace, now updated and available as ebook or print.About the Author:
Award-winning author Sara Stamey's "Cybers Wild Card" series of science fiction novels with Berkley/Ace/Putnam netted a Locus Best First Novels listing along with positive reviews from Publishers Weekly, SF Chronicle, and others. She is listed in databases as an early Cyberpunk author along with Gibson and Stephenson, which tickles her. More recently, her psychic-suspense novel ISLANDS won the Chanticleer Paranormal Suspense Award and is described by reviewers as "an intellectual thriller" and "a superior suspense novel....a fast read, a stomping vivid ride." Her near-future thriller THE ARIADNE CONNECTION, a Cygnus Speculative Fiction Award-winner, draws on her travels through the Greek islands and research into pandemics and geomagnetic reversals. "A rocket-paced thrill ride that delivers complex, engaging characters in a laser-sharp plot... while tapping into the deep roots of mythological tradition." (Chanticleer Reviews) "Pulses with admirable energy." (William Dietrich, NY Times bestselling author)
Sara has indulged her lifelong wanderlust with extended travels in out-of-the-way corners of the globe (inspiring some of her novels); operating a nuclear reactor at Hanford; treasure hunting and teaching scuba in the Caribbean and Honduras; and owning a farm in Southern Chile. Now resettled in her native Northwest Washington, she teaches creative writing at Western Washington University and offers independent editing services. She stays grounded with her native-plant restoration project in her sprawling Squalicum Creek backyard, shared with wild critters and her cats, dog, and very tall husband Thor.
