These books show that genuinely innovative SF is as exciting today as when it was first written. Now, as we move inexorably into the twenty-first century, we are delighted to be widening our remit even more. The realities of commercial publishing are such that vast troves of classic SF & Fantasy are almost certainly destined never again to see print. Until very recently, this meant that anyone interested in reading any of these books would have been confined to scouring second-hand bookshops. The advent of digital publishing has changed that paradigm for ever. Ace Books is an American specialty publisher of science fiction and fantasy books. The company was founded in New York City in 1952 by Aaron A. Wyn and began as a genre publisher of mysteries and westerns. It soon branched out into other genres, publishing its first science fiction (sf) title in 1953. This was successful, and science fiction titles outnumbered both mysteries and westerns within a few years. Other genres also made an appearance, including nonfiction, gothic novels, media tie-in novelizations, and romances.

About Cynthia Felice. I thrived in the corporate environment. Even when the environment is hostile, it's all 'grist for the mill.
This is one of the first novels by both Connie Willis and Cynthia Felice, before Willis established her current sterling reputation. If you're looking for another novel like Doomsday Book or To Say Nothing of the Dog, Water Witch will probably be a disappointment. This is her first published novel; prior to this is only a short story collection. Instead, it's a short character-driven story where most of the conflict comes from intrigue and trickery, based on a few standard tropes (planetary colony with an iffy grasp of technology, outsiders wanting to exploit the colony for local resources, psychic abilities) and a few obvious twists.
by Connie Willis and Cynthia Felice. Water Witch isn't big literature, but it provides an enjoyable few hours in another universe. Initially, the book gives you the impression that this will be fluffy entertainment, but it delivers much more. You bite into cotton candy and find, say, a lemon meringue pie. Just a little more depth than you'd expected. The story is fairly simple, but it would be easy to spoil the plot; forgive me if I'm circumspect.
