Part of my March 2010 Hugo Award winner bonanza.

Here's what my husband had to say about the book after he picked it up from the university library: "It appears to be about monkey-men. Therefore, it appears to be awesome."
______________

There's something to be said for a book that draws you in every time you pick it up. Each time it only took a page before I was fully in the "flow" - ignoring everything around me, forgetting my own life. And there are evolved Neanderthals and parallel universes! Neanderthal technology and Neanderthal cosmology! It's so silly and so much fun.

Even though Hominids is the first book in a trilogy, it is very self-contained, so don't worry that you will be left with tons of loose ends and teasers for the second book.

Aerin "It appears to be about monkey-men. Therefore, it appears to be awesome."

Can't argue with that logic!
