Military science fiction — finalist in the USABookNews Best Books Award for Science FictionWhen the first sentient alien life forms are found on a remote scientific colony, everyone wants to own the discovery–for research, for ownership, for profit–which only leads to enormous problems.
In Newcity, everyone is content. Bad feelings are not allowed, because your monitoring chip will alert the police to bring you in for treatment. Getting better is mandatory. Unchecked emotions made the world outside Newcity dangerous, unruly, and violent.
