The Maërlande Chronicles

Sequel to The Silent City...

A future society, where women far outnumber men, has abandoned the models of patriarchy and matriarchy and established new gender roles. But Lisbeï, a young thinker whose gift is exploring the past, confronts the new establishment in order to force changes of her own. The Maërlande Chronicles is a sequel to the critically-acclaimed novel The Silent City.

Praise:

“An exciting, demanding, satisfying thought-experiment — serious science fiction doing what only science fiction can do.” — Ursula K. LeGuin

“...Fascinating, beautifully worked out - a real treasure, a meticulously created society.” — Marion Zimmer Bradley

Élisabeth Vonarburg has succeeded in creating a memorable addition to the body of sociological science fiction.” — Pamela Sargent
