Description


This is the first novel in what has become one of the most popular series in contemporary SF, now back in print from Tor. In the 24th century, the Company preserves works of art and extinct forms of life (for profit of course). It recruits orphans from the past, renders them all but immortal, and trains them to serve the Company, Dr. Zeus. One of these is Mendoza the botanist. She is sent to Elizabethan England to collect samples from the garden of Sir Walter Iden.
But while there, she meets Nicholas Harpole, with whom she falls in love. And that love sounds great bells of change that will echo down the centuries, and through the succeeding novels of The Company.

About the Author


Kage Baker was a artist, actor, and director at the Living History Centre, and taught Elizabethan English as a Second Language. Her talent was lost to us when she passed away after a cancer diagnosis.

Praise For…


Praise for In the Garden of Iden"Baker's characterizations are robust and detailed, as is her development of the historical setting ... [Readers] will recognize in Baker a fantasist of considerable promise."--Publishers Weekly
“So, how do you classify a seriously philosophical time-travel story of a young cyborg’s first love amid religious conflict? As a good read.”—Locus
"A highly impressive and thoroughly engrossing debut."--Kirkus Reviews on In the Garden of Iden "The debut of a major talent. Kage Baker is a fresh, audacious, ambitious new voice." --Gardner Dozois on In the Garden of Iden “The prose is compulsively readable – it has the breezy feel of someone casually telling us a story, a feeling I associate with, say, Heinlein at his best. . . In fact, the whole book is a great deal of fun . . . it’s easily on a level with Le Guin’s or Resnick’s first novels.”—New York Review of SF
