Description

Part District 9, part Lost in Translation, part Stranger in a Strange Land. TRIPTYCH was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards and named one of Publisher's Weekly's Best Books of the Year. * Kalp is a widower, burdened with an unimaginable grief, who escaped his dying world with nothing but his own life and a half-finished toy for a child that will now never be born. Gwen is a language expert covertly recruited for a United Nations initiative to integrate a ship-full of alien refugees into life on earth. She becomes Kalp's teammate and lifeline. Basil is the engineer who lives with, and loves them, both. But he has no idea how to defend his new relationship against the ire and condemnation of a violently intolerant world. TRIPTYCH is a poignant, character-driven science-fiction story about tolerance, love, loss, and the desperate attempt to find connection in a world that no longer makes sense. * "I couldn't put it down. It's a very impressive first novel and if Ms. Frey continues to do with science fiction what she's done in this book she might single-handedly be credited with reviving the entire genre. Bravo! Encore, encore!" -Todd McCaffrey, The Dragonriders of Pern

Author Biography

J.M. is an author, fanthropologist and professional smartypants on AMI Radio's Live From Studio 5. She's appeared in podcasts, documentaries, and on television to discuss all things geeky through the lens of academia. She also has an addiction to scarves, Doctor Who, and tea, which may or may not all be related. Her life's ambitions are to have stepped foot on every continent (only 3 left!) Her debut novel TRIPTYCH was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards, won the San Francisco Book Festival award for SF/F, was nominated for a 2011 CBC Bookie, was named one of The Advocate's Best Overlooked Books of 2011, and garnered both a starred review and a place among the Best Books of 2011 from Publishers Weekly. Her sophomore novel, an epic-length feminist meta-fantasy titled THE UNTOLD TALE, (book one of the Accidental Turn Series), debuted December 2015, and was followed up by THE FORGOTTEN TALE December 2016, and THE SILENCED TALE in December 2017. THE SKYLARK'S SONG, book one of The Skylark's Saga, a YA steampunk action novel about a girl vigilante and her mysterious rocketpack, soars into book stores in 2018.
