Overview

Illyria, My Love by Lisa Mason

From the extinguished HomeWorld, the Settlers traveled across the stars to NewWorld with hopes of starting over again.

In the war-torn nation of Illyria, Maya just wants to grow vegetables and live in peace. But she has a dark secret she can never reveal, especially to her beloved Yuri.

Written in the tradition of Fritz Leiber's classic, "The Man Who Never Grew Young," and Martin Amis's Time's Arrow, uniquely told from a woman's point of view. The story's title is an homage to the 1959 film by Alain Resnais, "Hiroshima, Mon Amour."

The ebook includes an Afterword.

From the author of Summer of Love (a Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book); The Gilded Age (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), Arachne (A Locus Bestseller), Celestial Girl (A Lily Modjeska Mystery), The Garden of Abracadabra; and Strange Ladies: 7 Stories
