Marcelle Dubé grew up near Montreal. After trying out a number of different provinces—not to mention Belgium—she settled in the Yukon, where people still outnumber carnivores, but not by much. Her short fiction has appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies. Learn more about her and her other published work, including novels, at www.marcelledube.com.

In Jhyoti, Marcelle Dube uses a science fiction setting for another of her thought-provoking mysteries. Jhyoti is an anomaly: the first of her low caste to be accepted into training that might actually allow her to leave her planet for the stars. While conducting research that should finally confirm that she can go off-world, she discovers a body where it shouldn't be. Worse for Jhyoti, she shouldn't be there, either. The discovery of her presence leads Jhyoti into a murder investigation that pits a low-caste cadet against the highest echalons of her planet's elite. The result is a tense tale in a unique setting, with an interesting protagonist that you can't help but root for. I recommend Jhyoti and look forward to more stories with this protagonist.
