|Plot Summary of Night Sky Mine|
|"In Night Sky Mine, programs are no longer written - they're bred. They've been equipped with replication, attack, and defense code, and they live in the invisible world, preying on and interbreeding with other programs to form new ones. Ista is an apprentice hypothecary, one who harvests and analyzes wild programs, but she knows nothing of her past; at age two, she was the sole survivor of a mineship attack. When she meets two men who are investigating mineship disasters, she has to help them - but in doing so, she involves herself in a dangerous probe of illegal program breeding that could end the net as she knows it."
Ivy, Resident Scholar
