Overview

The 270,000-word second installment of the Irredente space opera series, Tales from the Arm & Bar, begins four years after Henryk Burgred, illegitimate genovariant child of a deceased patrician military officer and a slum prostitute, goes to the family homeworld Plum Grove. Having been rescued from almost certain death on Edom by his uncle, and having earned the wrath of the Irredente hegemony by killing a senior naval intelligence official, Henryk for the first time in his life finds a pastoral place of peace and comfort at the Burgred family estates on Plum Grove. There he settles into his privileged but duty-bound birthright.


Meantime, the reactionary eunuch priest Hersey, who as cleric on Edom had consigned Henryk to a one-way trip to Lindenau, charnel-house of the hegemony, has traveled to the Beyond (the Bar End). There, Hersey -- accompanied by his symbiant companion Tildy -- has visited the many strange, genovariant-populated worlds organized under the authority of the Mediant, finally landing upon the world of the Mediant itself, where Hersey is forever changed. Hersey regains his manhood, takes Tildy as his wife, and is commanded by The Mediant to return to the Irredente hegemony to spread a gospel of toleration for all life -- including inorganic sentient life driven into hiding by the Irredente prohibitions on technology.


Tales from the Arm & Bar follows the separate trajectories of Henryk and Hersey through 750 pages of adventure, peril, revelation, and redemption until the lives of many individuals converge upon a single, mysterious point: the doomed planet Innisfree.
