  The Slave and the Free





The Slave and the Free


  A stunning first novel and its sequel: Walk to the End of the World, a desperate adventure through a collapsing culture dominated by arrogant old men; and Motherlines, an exploration of what amazon warriors might be like — not in patronizing Greek myths, but in a free, wild future on the other side of the mountains.

Walk to the End of the World and Motherlines, books I and II of The Holdfast Chronicles, in one volume.

Walk to the End of the World
"Only one science fiction book in hundreds manages to convince the reader that it ever could have happened anywhere . . . In Walk to the End of the World, Charnas has created a future that is at once believable and fascinating."
William S. Burroughs

  Motherlines
"Charnas knows exactly what her characters eat and wear and use and what they have to do to get it and what happens to them if they don't, and that's rock bottom political awareness if any ever existed. . . She doesn't tell you, she shows you, from the authentic eeriness of the Moonwoman legends to Alldera's becoming the reluctant George Washington of her people. "
  Joanna Russ, Sinister
