From the Back Cover
Murasaki, star HD36395, where vastly different alien ecologies have evolved on two closely revolving planets: Genji, turbulent, reckless, filled with a variety of winged life, and Chujo, a world of ancient, crumbling cities slowly succumbing to the icy cold. However, both planets are host to intelligent but unimaginably strange forms of life and have another eerie connection that becomes rapidly apparent to the first human explorers…
Are the planets capable of supporting human life? The future wealth and pride of nations and, ultimately, the survival of the human race depend on the success of the first expedition to set down on the strangely-coloured alien soil…
Epic in scope, but intricately detailed and with a bold prophetic vision, Murasaki is destined to become a classic.
'Six Nebula Award-winning authors have created deftly interlinked stories…an exemplary shared-world anthology that adds up to more than the sum of its parts'
