Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Elizabeth Hand's dynamite debut novel, a sensual dystopian journey through a world unburdened by moral taboos Set in the surreal, post-apocalyptic City of Trees, Winterlong centers on Wendy Wanders, a girl who can tap into the dreams and emotions of the people around her, and her long-lost twin brother, Raphael, a seductive sacred courtesan to the City's decadent elite. During their voyage, they encounter manmade and godlike monstrosities?both hideous and gorgeous?in their effort to stop an ancient power from consuming all. Blending science fiction and fantasy, Winterlong is a dark fairy tale about a land where societal and sexual taboos have disappeared, and what's left is a world that is both lyrical and terrifying, familiar and striking. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Elizabeth Hand including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
