I've never read a book before that I will take to my daughter (a doctor) to ask what all the words mean. Also will buy an audio of this book for her. I stopped reading science fiction many years ago when all of the ones I read seemed to have the same plot. Oops! My bad. Should have rechecked the genre earlier. I will of course get a copy of your other books. Thank you for an intriguing book and the mind-stretching ideas within.

Many thanks, Linda! (And there's even a glossary in the back...)

Books on Tape (from my local library )fill in the sleepless hours of each night. I have seldom been so swept away with fascinating writing as with Darwin's Radio. George Guidall's reading brought these characters to flesh and blood. Only a woman could have written the birthing sequence. How did you do that?

I want to read more about these people...as special humans but not as wierd creatures. I am not into Sci-fi. Reviews of your other books are scary. What else has been put on tape? Gretchen

Thanks, Gretchen! George's reading is famous, and he did a fine job on my novels. I believe he's also the reader for BLOOD MUSIC. Many of my books are out on tape or CD. I recommend against the bundled packs being sold on eBay and elsewhere--those are usually text-to-speech atrocities, and besides, they're pirated...

You might enjoy DEAD LINES and QUANTICO. They're both available from BBC audio.
