Burn is James Patrick Kelly at his best, and there's nothing better."
--Connie Willis, author of Doomsday Book

The tiny planet Morobe's Pea has been sold and renamed Walden. The new owner has some interesting ideas. Voluntary simplicity will rule in the Transcendent State; Walden is destined to become a paradise covered in lush new forests.

But even believers find temptations in the black markets; non-believers are willing to defend their ideals with fire. Walden's only hope may lie with a third option: a very unlikely alien intervention.

In Burn , James Patrick Kelly ( Think Like a Dinosaur ) delivers an innovative, entertaining, and morally-complex vision of the perils of idealism.
