Algis Budrys, Jerome Bixby
Never underestimate the power of a woman, they told him. But when he found the bedraggled waif stowed away on the miserable little ship to Mars, he knew what was waiting for her out there. And he knew she’d underestimated a lot of things. Algis Budrys was the Hugo and Nebula award nominated author of Rogue Moon and Michaelmas.
