Paul (paullev) | 21 comments Just published on Kindle - my 1998 Sturgeon-nominated novelette, The Orchard.


In the 22nd century, humans have discovered numerous planets teeming with life, but none with human-level intelligence. Teams of exo-biologists have been dispatched to the most promising places. The fifth planet of the Beta Hydri system has a patch of trees that bear delicious fruit. Will it kill the exo-biologists before they can prove that the orchard was deliberately planted - a sure sign of intelligent life - and get the news back to Earth?

"Paul Levinson adds a new wrinkle to the ages old search for intelligent life in the universe in 'The Orchard' ... shows us that the subtlest remnants of a civilization might be its most revealing legacy." - SF Site
