Fireflood & Other Stories
The stories in Fireflood have settings as far apart as the seas of Earth and the deserts of distant planets, as different as raw wilderness and a sophisticated spaceport. With a mixture of both cruelty and idealism Man has learned to shape mind and body to previously unimagined ends. But there is always a price. The serpent-healing of the sick demands sacrifices, as does the service of a long-departed god on a dying planet. Under the volcanoes and beneath the waves adapted life-forms struggle for their own destinies, while in the air the winged people sailing among the stars or the perils of planetfall. In Redsun's jungle work-camps the slaves fight both to survive and to resist the release they are offered. And finally, a new starship pilot finds she has set herself apart by more than light years.
Vonda N. McIntyre's collection brings a sensitive touch to powerful themes, combining all the qualities of insight and imagination which won her Dreamsnake both the Hugo and Nebula Awards.
