Winner, 2004 Nebula Award--
The Nebula Award is the highest honor that a speculative fiction novel can be awarded, and is both nominated by and voted upon entirely by working professionals and peers in the science fiction literary community.
Thoughtful, poignant, and unforgettable, The Speed of Dark is a gripping exploration into the world of Lou Arrendale, an autistic man who is offered a chance to try a brand-new experimental “cure” for his condition. Now Lou must decide if he should submit to a surgery that might completely change the way he views the world . . . and the very essence of who he is.
“A remarkable journey . . . [that] takes us into the mind of an autistic with a terrible choice: become normal or remain an alien on his own planet.” —MARY DORIA RUSSELL, author of The Sparrow
