The Life of Human was a novel written by Andrew Wiggin under the pen name "Speaker for the Dead".[1]



Published in around 3000 AX, The Life of Human was a story of the life experiences of Human, the Pequeninos as a species and how they were different from what most humans thought of them - illustrating that they were Ramen, and not Varelse.[1]


Due to the fact that The Life of Human was released thousands of years after the first two books written by the Speaker for the Dead, many considered it to be a fraud. However, some accepted it alongside The Hive Queen and The Hegemon.[1]
