Overview

Pliocene Companion by Julian May

This is a book for the many thousands of readers who have become entranced with Julian May's fantasy-science fiction quartet, The Saga of Pliocene Exile.

That saga has become an international best-seller and has drawn much comment: "A richly inventive series... drama or opera in the largest sense" {Science Fiction Review}. "Julian May has made a new and fresh masterwork in the genre and has irrevocably placed herself among the great of fantasy and science fiction" {Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine). "Of all the authors since The Lord of the Rings appeared, May has most closely matched J. R. R Tolkien's achievement" {San Francisco Chronicle). Over the course of the four volumes of The Many-Colored Land, The Golden Tore, The Nonborn King, and The Adversary, the story has become so rich, complex, and so peopled with characters from different parts of the Pliocene world, that a guide and commentary is called for. The Pliocene Companion offers a descriptive listing of all the characters in'the work, a chronology, the author's original maps, and three delightful interviews with May herself. Beyond that, it gives the reader a chance to explore further the surroundings of a world six million years in the past. The glossary gives information on metapsychology, on the futuristic science of the Galactic Milieu, and on the exotic world of the Tanu and Firvulag. In all, A Pliocene Companion is a must for followers of the Saga.
