It's talking to some distant star, perhaps. Or perhaps to something closer, something en route. So who do you send to force introductions on an intelligence with motives unknown, maybe unknowable? Who do you send to meet the alien when the alien doesn't want to meet? You send a linguist with multiple personalities, her brain surgically partitioned into separate, sentient processing cores. You send a biologist so radically interfaced with machinery that he sees x-rays and tastes ultrasound, so compromised by grafts and splices he no longer feels his own flesh.

You send a pacifist warrior in the faint hope she won't be needed, and the fainter one she'll do any good if she is.

That much was apparent even from his earliest short fiction in the nineties. Being a marine biologist by study, Watts set his first novel Starfish three kilometers below the sea surface to a rift in the Juan de Fuca subduction zone.

The success of Starfish was followed by publishing the two next books of the Rifters trilogy, Maelstrom and Behemoth. Let me introduce you the man who thinks interesting things.
