Random House, Inc.
In the twenty-third century pioneers have escaped the crowded earth for life in self-sustaining orbital colonies.  One of the colonies, Rotor, has broken away from the solar system to create its own renegade utopia around an unknown red star two light-years from Earth:  a star named Nemesis.  Now a fifteen-year-old Rotorian girl has learned of the dire threat that nemesis poses to Earth's people--but she is prevented from warning them.  Soon she will realize that Nemesis endangers Rotor as well.  And so it will be up to her alone to save both Earth and Rotor as--drawn inexorably by Nemesis, the death star--they hurtle toward certain disaster.

I own a printed paperback version of Nemesis. The story was so compelling I binge-read it until dawn one night. It did not disappoint! A must read for sci-fi enthusiasts.

Where to begin? Asimov influenced my perception of the human mind, including my own, when I first read his "Nemesis" 15 years ago. The heroine is developed like no other female in my history of reading novels and short stories. Her foils and environment developing around her every move, I encourage her at every page. However, I keep my distance for fear of being known to my very core. Her "gift" is unnerving and haunts my dreams today, tomorrow and into Isaac's future world.
