Music From the Fifth Planet collects 14 of Anne Nicholls’ best science fiction and fantasy stories.
"Anne is at her finest when displaying and dissecting [the] viciously intertwined brambles of human making, showing how the dream of reality and its truth can be so far apart between one mind and another... All of these are beautifully written. Anne evokes setting and directs action with great skill so that the tales flow along at an effortless pace from daring beginning to satisfying end. I wish she would write more adventure stories!" — Justina Robson
"I love a good story: thrills, adventures, heroism, the writing of wrongs." — Anne Nicholls
