    The first novel of Kage Baker’s critically acclaimed, much-loved series, the Company, introduces us to a world where the future of commerce is the past. In the 24th century, the Company preserves works of art and extinct forms of life (for profit of course). It recruits orphans from the past, renders them all but immortal, and trains them to serve the Company, Dr. Zeus, Inc. One of these is Mendoza, the botanist. She is sent to Elizabethan England to collect samples from the garden of Sir Walter Iden.

    Ethan M. says: "Very different SF, both in performance and tone"
    "Where oh where is #2?"

    Any additional comments?

    I nearly abandoned this series after book one in print but was richly rewarded by the subsequent volumes.

    The backstory is barely limned. The characters begin their development. And then it stops.

    It gets considerably better. Where are the rest of them in audio format?
