Sue Burke’s sweeping, award-finalist, SF Semiosis epic continues in Interference as the colonists and a team from Earth confront a new and more implacable intelligence.

Over two hundred years after the first colonists landed on Pax, a new set of explorers arrives from Earth on what they claim is a temporary scientific mission.

But the Earthlings misunderstand the nature of the Pax settlement and its real leader. Even as Stevland attempts to protect his human tools, a more insidious enemy than the Earthlings makes itself known.

Stevland is not the apex species on Pax.

My name is Norah Canivan, and for 50 years I’ve kept a secret.

It is a secret about the girl I discovered hiding on our sorry patch of land – the girl in the tattered green dress who was running from something – and someone.

The Girl in Green brought something different into my young life. And something darker. And when she died, nothing was ever the same after.

For 50 years, only I’ve known what really happened to The Girl in Green.

And now, these many years later, my secret may kill me.
