Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Author of The Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant, one of the most acclaimed fantasy series of all time, master storyteller Stephen R. Donaldson retums with this exciting and long-awaited new series that takes us into a stunningly imagined future to tell a timeless story of adventure and the implacable conflict of good and evil within each of us.

Angus Thermopyle was an ore pirate and a murderer; even the most disreputable asteroid pilots of Delta Sector stayed locked out of his way.Those who didn't ended up in the lockup--or dead.But when Thermopyle arrived at Mallory's Bar & Sleep with a gorgeous woman by his side the regulars had to take notice.Her name was Morn Hyland, and she had been a police officer--until she met up with Thermopyle.

But one person in Mallorys Bar wasn't intimidated.Nick Succorso had his own reputation as a bold pirate and he had a sleek frigate fitted for deep space.Everyone knew that Thermopyle and Succorso were on a collision course.What nobody expected was how quickly it would be over--or how devastating victory would be.It was common enough example of rivalry and revenge--or so everyone thought.The REAL story was something entirely different.

In The Real Story, Stephen R. Donaldson takes us to a remarkably detailed world of faster-than-light travel, politics, betrayal, and a shadowy presence just outside our view to tell the fiercest, most profound story he has ever written.

Synopsis:

With an enormous corporation controlling all of explored space in an era of a faster-than-light travel known as "crossing the gap," Morn Hyland flees from the military police she once served and joins space pirate, Angus Thermopyle. Reprint.
