Alethea Eason's debut young-adult science fiction novel, Hungry, has been published by HarperCollins under its US Eos imprint.
Hungry is a light-hearted tale of an alien family sent by their race to scout out Earth and its inhabitants as a new source of food, and of their daughter, Deborah, who not only has a crush on a human named Willy, but would rather eat M&Ms anyway."
2007 Hugo nominee Bruce McAllister says of the book, "Hungry is one of the funniest - and probably the most charming - alien invasion tales this field has seen. Its spunky (and all-too-human) heroine is irresistible."
Eason's short fiction has appeared in YA editor Bruce Coville's science fiction and fantasy anthologies, Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine and other publications. Alethea has also completed book two, Starved, in her planned trilogy.
