C.J. Cherryh
[Cover] The Dreaming Tree (The Dreamstone & The Tree of Swords & Jewels )
DAW paperback
Cherryh's classic fantasy tale of the twilight of faery, "A beautifully told tale reminiscent of Dunsany," (Publishers Weekly), has finally been collected into a single volume, together with some brand new material. With the first clang of iron still echoing in the air, and the reek of smoke signaling the advance of man, there still remained one last untouched place: the small forest of Ealdwood, where the magic was still intact and the old ways were preserved. A compelling tale of the final stronghold of immortality struggling to survive the rise of man.

Fortress of Owls (Fortress in the Eye of Time, Volume 3)
HarperPrism (hardcover, 406 pages, $24/$35 Can)
Publication date: January 5, 1999

Plenty of folks try their hand at both SF and Fantasy; far fewer are truly successful at both. C.J. Cherryh has built a large fan base on both sides of that fence -- first with her award winning SF novels, including Downbelow Station and Cyteen, and then with the borderline fantasy series that began with Rider at the Gate. With this series (which began with Fortress in the Eye of Time and Fortress of Eagles, and continues in the forthcoming Fortress of Dragons) she's staked a claim to High Fantasy as well. "There is a vast difference between wizardry and sorcery, a difference embodied in the conflict between the shadowy immortals Mauryl and Hasufin. Tristen is a weapon in that ancient war... brought to life by the wizard Mauryl. And he's about to enter the terrible conflict again."
[Cover] Finity's End
Warner Aspect (reprint, paperback, 564 pages, $6.50 US/$8.50 Canada)
Publication date: August 1, 1998

From the author of Fortress of Eagles, Downbelow Station, Cloud's Rider, Serpent's Reach, and numerous other fine works of SF and fantasy comes a new Merchanter novel, a 1998 Hugo Award nominee which falls between Merchanter's Luck and Tripoint in the Alliance/Union timeline. It picks up the tale of orphan Fletcher Neihart, recruited into the crew of the legendary merchanter ship Finity's End, the oldest Merchanter ship in the universe. "In an era of spies, pirate traders, and uneasy alliances, the Company Wars are now over, the hunt for the fleet is winding down, and the ship is coming home to reclaim her trade routes. Having lost an entire generation, the youngest crew members, bred and trained for war, must face their most critical battle of all -- survival in a time of lasting peace."
Cuckoo's Egg
Forget wolves -- what would it be like to be a human raised by an alien? The first of this month's rich line-up of Cherryh reprints. If you haven't sampled anything by this fine adventure writer, now's your chance.
Downbelow Station
Winner of the Hugo Award for best novel. The first of the Company Wars novels and the one that started it all, this is a fine standalone work in its own right. A tale of two great powers, Earth and Union, it is followed by insightful looks at the same society from distinctly different perspectives: Merchanter's Luck from the merchants', Cyteen from Union's, and Hellburner from Earth's. Check out C. J. Cherryh's site for a background and complete title list.
Forty Thousand in Gehenna
Set in the same timeline as Downbelow Station but fully self-contained. The 40,000 colonists on Gehenna, abandoned for political reasons, find their colony collapsing and the future full of very difficult decisions. Over the next two centuries the colonists gradually become a part of Gehennan ecology, entering into an unusual partnership with the planet's sole sentient lifeform - the lizardlike, burrowing calibans.
Merchanter's Luck
A Company Wars novel. A meeting between a tramp star-freighter pilot -- one who flies the Union planets under false papers and fake names -- and a proud member of a powerful merchant family triggers a race to Downbelow Station... and a final confrontation at a deadly destination off the cosmic charts.
Serpent's Reach
Set far after the Company Wars novels, this follows the Faded Sun novels: Kesrith, Shon'jir and Kutath. "Within the Constellation of the Serpent, out of bounds to all spacefarers, humans live among the insect-like aliens-- and one of them, a woman named Paen, is bent on a revenge that will tear apart the truce between human and alien."
DAW paperback
The third in the Foreigner series which chronicles human expansion into space. Follows Invader. A political faction threatens to plunge the colony world into war.
