On a warm night in March 2083, Judy Wallach-Stevens wakes up to a warning about unknown pollutants in the Chesapeake Bay. She sets out to find out what she believes to be a false alarm and stumbles across Earth’s first alien visitors. These aliens have traversed the galaxy to save humanity, believing that the people of Earth must leave their ecologically devastated planet behind and join them among the stars. And if humanity doesn’t agree, they may have to be rescued by the force.

But the watershed networks that have sprung up to save the planet from corporate devastation are not ready to give up on Earth. Decades ago, they reorganized humanity in hopes of keeping the world habitable. By sharing the burden of the decision-making, they have begun to heal our wounded planet.

Now corporations, nation-states, and networks are vying to represent humanity to these powerful new beings, and if anyone accepts the aliens’ offer, Earth could be lost. With all eyes on the sky, the future depends on Judy’s efforts to create understanding, both within and outside of her own kind.

A Half-Built Garden is a clever and compelling science fiction novel about the near future of first contact, written by Ruthanna Emrys. It was published by Macmillan on their Tor Forge imprint on July 26, 2022, is 352 pages long and available in hardcover, audio and e-book. It’s worth noting that the e-book format includes a handy interactive table of contents, as well as interactive links and references throughout. Lately I’ve fallen in love with e-books with interactive formats.

This is a beautifully written, slow moving, seriously written story. I was literally engaged from the first page. Alien first contact stories are a favorite and this one is a good one. Set in the year 2083, humans have finally banded together (sort of) to confine the corporations to isolated outposts and are in a desperate race to save Earth and maintain habitability. The aliens appear to convince the remnants of humanity to leave Earth before a cataclysm turns them into a lost cause.

The protagonist/first-person narrator is sympathetically written, intelligent, queer, compassionate and three-dimensional. There is much content in the book that is extrapolated from corporate oligarchy, corruption, greed and the nature of power and the impact it is having on our climate and living space.

At the same time, it’s a story about parenthood and identity and the fact that diapers need to be changed and babies insist on being fed even when they’re only minutes away from first contact with extraterrestrial life forms. Some of the references to parenting moments lent a touch of fantasy, some of which I felt broke the narrative a little and snapped me out of my incredulous limbo.

Here is a very human story wrapped in an incredibly creative world that made me stop in awe at several points. Mrs Emrys is a gifted storyteller and this is a well written story.
