Description :

Octavo, boards. First edition. "Kress moved vigorously into sf with her fourth novel, the slow-moving but cumulatively impressive AN ALIEN LIGHT (1988), set on a planet inhabited by two sets of irreconcilably opposed humans, the descendants of the people from a migratory starship that had crashed there centuries earlier after a battle with the alien Ged. All knowledge of this history has been lost, and the Ged set up a huge technological honey-trap to entice humans inside for study, as they have found the territoriality and attendant aggressiveness of Homo sapiens baffling. What they learn from the two sets of stranded humans does not lead them to feel that can in the end win a war against a species whose savagery seems ultimately unopposable." - John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-613. Hartwell, 200 Significant SF Books by Women, 1984-2001. Publisher's review slip and publicity sheet laid in. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#154226).

Synopsis : This science fiction novel tells how the human race is at war with the Ged, a species that is baffled by mankind's ability to turn violence upon itself. In order to defeat the humans, the Ged must first understand them, but they don't anticipate that they will meet opposition from a few humans.
