Synopsis

"Hugo and Nebula Award-winner Mike Resnick once again shows why he so often wins those two major honors from fans and writers of the genre of science fiction". -- Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel on a Miracle of Rare Design

Award-winner Mike Resnick takes us on a new journey across alien landscapes in this powerful quest. Dr. Michael Drake, a great medical researcher, chose to disappear into the jungles of the world called Bushveld, but now the human-settled Galaxy needs him to combat a new plague. Journalist-adventurer Robert Markham has determined to locate Drake and bring him back to civilization ... whether he wants to come or not.

"A Miracle of Rare Design has an old-fashioned sense of casual scope and determined exoticism, as explorer-travel writer Xavier Lennox moves from one strange planet to the next like a nineteenth century adventurer seeking new tribes and lost cities in Africa and Asia". -- Locus
