Publisher's summary

The Hugo Award-winning author of numerous best-sellers, Charles Stross crafts tales that push the limits of the genre.

In Saturn's Children, Freya is an obsolete android concubine in a society where humans haven't existed for hundreds of years. A rigid caste system keeps the Aristos, a vindictive group of humanoids, well in control of the lower, slave-chipped classes. So when Freya offends one particularly nasty Aristo, she's forced to take a dangerous courier job off-planet.

Critic reviews

"Stross takes a plot device common to mystery novels and turns it into one of the most stylishly imaginative robot tales ever penned." ( Booklist)
"Good fun... Heinlein himself would've liked this." ( San Diego Union-Tribune)
