More About Tales of Nevèrÿon by Samuel R. Delany
 
 
 
Overview

Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author Samuel R. Delany's epic fantasy—the first in a series—explores power, gender, and the nature of civilization.

A boy of the bustling, colorful docks of port Kolhari, during a political coup, fifteen-year-old Gorgik, once his parents are killed, is taken a slave and transported to the government obsidian mines at the foot of the Faltha mountains. When, in the savagely primitive land of Nevèrÿon, finally he wins his freedom, Gorgik is ready to lead a rebellion against the rulers of this barely civilized land. His is the through-story that, now in the background, now in the foreground, connects these first five stories, in Tales of Nevèrÿon—and, indeed, all the eleven stories, novellas, and novels that comprise Delany's epic fantasy series, Return to Nevèrÿon, where we can watch civilization first develop money, writing, labor, and that grounding of all civilizations since: capital itself.

In these sagas of barbarism, new knowledge, and sex, you'll find far more than in most sword-and-sorcery. They are an epic feat of language, an ironic analysis of the foundations of civilization, and a reminder that no weapon is more powerful than a well-honed legend.
This "eminently readable and gorgeously entertaining" (The Washington Post Book World) novel reads "as if Umberto Eco had written about Conan the Barbarian" (USA Today).

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Samuel R. Delany including rare images from his early career.
