Common and Precious

Price$17.95

Born to a life of privilege on the poverty-ridden ice planet of New Tibet, Melinda lives high above the masses, until a brutal attack on her family thrusts her into the lives of a ragged, desperate band of outlaws. In her struggles to escape them and avoid the sinister Shivers, a crime syndicate bent on tracking her down, she will learn how the people of New Tibet really live — and how they die.

Return to the cold, dreary world first described in the short story anthologies Breaking the Ice and Shadows in Snow. In this first full-length novel set in the world, creator and author Tim Susman delves deeper into the socio-economic conditions that make New Tibet the deeply textured world it is.
