Product description


"Bringing out "new" early Delany is the publishing equivalent of extracting dinosaur DNA from flies embedded in amber. Would that there were more!" --William Gibson""They Fly at ciron" is a delightful novel that would make an excellent introduction to its author's books...a body of work that remains the platinum standard by which other works of science fiction and fantasy should be measured. I was so drawn into it that I read the book in a single hungry sitting, and I imagine most readers will do the same..." "Science Fiction Eye""A tremendous story, a powerful plot, full of sex and warfare, beauty and wonder. It's got everything. You will like it." --Michael Swanwick"An intense rapid adventure...Delany's usual musicality and precision is here expressed in an urgent clean line, which reads to me as if this great artist is perhaps entering a new period or style." --Kim Stanley Robinson


When a peaceful nation of well-organized peasants is overrun by the army of an expanding industrialized neighbour, the people of Ciron must forge a pact with the strange and fearsome race of flying humans dwelling high above in the mountains.
