TT: The Death of Sleep

This week’s Throwback Thursday / TT: The Death of Sleep by Anne McCaffrey & Jody Lynn Nye

The Death of Sleep was the first book I ever read centered around the idea of cryosleep. I still love this series, old though this cover may be.

The Death of Sleep

What I Love about This Cover:  This cover is very much a period of its time (and publisher), but I appreciate that. When I was a kid, I always wanted to know more about the woman on the cover and what device was strapped to her back.

What I Don’t Love about This Cover: I’m not a fan of the brownish-orange background on it. I’d love to see where she’s standing.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
