The Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author of Tales of Neveryon "continues to surprise and delight" with this thought-provoking epic fantasy (The New York Times). One of the few in Neveryon who can read and write, pryn has saddled a wild dragon and taken off from a mountain ledge. Self-described as an adventurer, warrior, and thief, in her journey pryn will meet plotting merchants, sinister aristocrats, half-mad villagers, and a storyteller who claims to have invented writing itself. The land of Neveryon is mired in a civil war over slavery, and pryn will also find herself—for a while—fighting alongside Gorgik the Liberator, from whom she will learn the cunning she needs as she journeys further and further south in search of a sunken city; for at history's dawn, some dangers even dragons cannot protect you from. The second volume in Samuel R. Delany's Return to Neveryon cycle, NeveryOna is the longer of its two full-length novels. (The other is The Tale of Plagues and Carnivals.) An intriguing meditation on the power of language, the rise of cities, and the dawn of myth, markets, and money, it is a truly wonder-filled adventure.This ebook features an illustrated biography of Samuel R. Delany including rare images from his early career.
