Annotation:Collects previously published and new short works written under both of Robin Hobb's/Megan Lindholm's pseudonyms, with brief notes by the author prefacing every piece that offers insight into the story's origin.
Annotation:Anyanwu is all that is female: She can birth tribes, heal with kisses, and transform into anything she forces herself to be. Doro is all that is male: He possesses, seduces, hunts, and kills raising armies and bending empires to his will. One cannot die, the other cannot be killed.
Annotation:Shevek, a brilliant physicist from the anarchist moon Anarres, risks his life by traveling to the mother planet of Urras in the hope of offering wisdom to its inhabitants and to reunite the two long-alienated worlds.
