Shadow Twin - Gardner Dozois, George RR Martin e Daniel Abraham

"Shadow Twin" is a finely crafted science-fiction novel that was started in the mid-1970s by Gardner Dozois. A few years later, Dozois passed the unfinished manuscript on to George R.R. Martin to complete -- but while both writers agreed the story had promise, neither could work up the initiative to finish it. Over the next 20-some years, the story languished in a creative limbo between them; both worked on it now and again, but neither could or would finish it. Then, in 2002, young turk Daniel Abraham got his mitts on it and finally polished the thing off. Ramon wakes up in a mysterious tank surrounded by aliens that have a quest for him. He must find the other human that escaped from them. Since he is human, he would know how the other man will behave. Ramon is leashed like a police tracking dog, and sent out with an alien to supervise his mission. The tension of the chase, the harsh wilderness, and being a captive himself culminate into an unforgettable ending where Ramon discovers an unbelievable truth.
