9780553567670: Glory Season

Hugo and Nebula award-winning author David Brin is one of the most eloquent, imaginative voices in science fiction.  Now he returns with a new novel rich in texture, universal in theme, monumental in scope--pushing the genre to new heights.

Young Maia is fast approaching a turning point in her life.  As a half-caste var, she must leave the clan home of her privileged half sisters and seek her fortune in the world.  With her twin sister, Leie, she searches the docks of Port Sanger for an apprenticeship aboard the vessels that sail the trade routes of the Stratoin oceans.

On her far-reaching, perilous journey of discovery, Maia will endure hardship and hunger, imprisonment and loneliness, bloody battles with pirates and separation from her twin.  And along the way, she will meet a traveler who has come an unimaginable distance--and who threatens the delicate balance of the Stratoins' carefully maintained, perfect society....

Both exciting and insightful, Glory Season is a major novel, a transcendent saga of the human spirit.

Descripción Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. Winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, voted favorite writer of the 1980s by readers of Locus magazine, David Brin commands one of the most eloquent, incisive voices in science fiction today. Now the New York Times bestselling author of Earth, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War returns to set a new course, delivering a novel rich in texture, universal in theme, monumental in scope - pushing the genre to new heights. Long ago, the Founding Mothers left old Earth and the Phylum Worlds, seeking a hidden place to reforge human destiny. Through genetic wizardry, they have altered human sexual patterns. For most of the year, any child born on planet Stratos is a clone of her mother, identical to all the sisters in her venerable clan. Only in summer are vars conceived - old-fashioned, gene-mixed girls, and even sometimes boys - each one garishly, ignobly unique. Maia, one lonely young var, grows up knowing she must summon all her skill to win a place in this world run by and for high-caste clanswomen. A world far gentler than those of the Old Phylum .except for those rare seasons of change, where the planet seems to call its people forth to glory. Preparing to set sail, Maia watches the strange, bearded face of the seamen. Are the teachings true? Are men practically another species, fit only for brief encounters? Or might their arts and games and secret ways hint of something deeper to share with the women of Stratos? Ready to seek a place in the world, Maia sets forth expecting labor and hardship. What she finds is danger, adventure, and a strange, half-innocent emissary, whose simple message may mean new hope.or a return to ancient terrors. From the vast unforgiving sea, toimprisonment, to rocky depths where she must wrest hidden secrets from the clutches of time, Maia comes to understand why the Founding Mothers sought a change in human life.and what a price their descendants must pay. Here is a saga of remarkable passion and drama, set in a faraway p. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780553567670
