About Sheri S. Tepper

Selected Work

  • Series: Plague of angels:
  • A Plague of Angels (Bantam, 1993)
  • The Water Rising (Eos, released August 31, 2010)
  • The Arbai Trilogy
  • Grass (Doubleday, 1989) -- Hugo and Locus Awards nominee, 1990

  • Sideshow (Doubleday, 1992) -- John W. Campbell Award nominee, 1993

From a review of Grass:

"Tepper's Grass is, with hindsight, one of the most significant works of 1980s SF: a spacious, well-plotted, wise and thought-provoking book with an exceptionally cover scanwell-drawn central character and a beautiful twist on the 'beauty and the beast' mythos at its heart. Gollancz's reissue of the work, in a characteristically handsome 'SF Masterworks' paperback is long overdue. Those who have not read this powerful masterpiece should be herded with cattle-prods out to the bookshops until that situation is remedied; those who have read it should take this opportunity to re-read the work. Like all great literature, it repays re-reading and close attention."
