    Who was I? How did I come here? Why did I feel so much pain? 
    Waking up barefoot in the woods with no memory of who he is or how he got there, a young man known only by the name Stranger, sets off on a journey through the bizarre reality of World City. A place seemingly outside of time and space, where the people speak in riddles and the game is played by an entirely different set of rules.  
    With each new character he meets, Stranger’s path takes him through the streets, the nightclubs, the churches, the prisons, the courts, and finally to the highest power in the world, where he must make a choice that will forever alter the fate of the city.  
    Confronting the world’s biggest problems while searching for the answers to his life’s deepest questions, this stranger in a strange land must find something that is true in this lost city, and have faith, if he ever wants to find his way back home.

    Individually, they are a seemingly simpleminded young man living in the woods who can read the thoughts of others, a runaway girl with telekinetic powers, twin girls who can barely speak but can teleport across great distances, and an infant with a mind like a supercomputer. Together, they are the Gestalt—a single extraordinary being comprised of remarkable parts—although an essential piece may be missing . . . But are they the next stage in human development or harbingers of the end of civilization? The answer may come when they are joined by Gerry. Powerfully telepathic, he lacks a moral compass—and his hatred of the world that has rejected him could prove catastrophic. More Than Human is a genre-bending wonder that explores themes of responsibility and morality, individuality, and belonging. The novel was one of the first to elevate science fiction into the realm of literature, and inspired musicians and artists, including the Grateful Dead and Crosby, Stills & Nash. From the Nebula Award–winning author of Godbody, The Dreaming Jewels, and other great works of science fiction, this is a must-listen for anyone who enjoys Ramsey Campbell, Robert Silverberg, or Philip José Farmer.

    On the forbidding fringes of the tundra, where years are marked by seasons of snow, humans war with immortals in the name of their shared gods. Irjan, a human warrior, is ruthless and lethal, a legend among the Brethren of Hunters. But even legends grow tired and disillusioned. 
    Scarred and weary of bloodshed, Irjan turns his back on his oath and his calling to hide away and live a peaceful life as a farmer, husband, and father. But his past is not so easily left behind. When an ambitious village priest conspires with the vengeful comrades Irjan has forsaken, the fragile peace in the Northlands of Davvieana is at stake. 
    His bloody past revealed, Irjan's present unravels as he faces an ultimatum: return to hunt the immortals or lose his child. But with his son's life hanging in the balance, as Irjan follows the tracks through the dark and desolate snow-covered forests, it is not death he searches for, but life.
