Excerpt: IF TOMORROW COMES by Nancy Kress (Tor)

KressN-TK2-IfTomorrowComesUSToday, we have an excerpt from Nancy Kress‘s latest novel, If Tomorrow Comes. Selected as a March SFF must-read by io9, Kirkus and the Verge, it is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Tomorrow’s Kin. If Tomorrow Comes is published by Tor Books. Here’s the synopsis:

Ten years after the Aliens left Earth, humanity succeeds in building a ship, Friendship, to follow them home to Kindred.
