A far future "dying earth" science fantasy tale about identity, erotic desire, flying water and a mystery...
"This is science fiction the way that Jack Vance's Dying Earth books are science fiction."
— Charles de Lint
"A clever concoction of vignettes and short stories knitted into a morality tale about the temptation of illusion and the price of truth... an exotic setting reminiscent of Tanith Lee's Flat Earth series.... The author's sumptuous language will resonate with Lord Dunsany and Clark Ashton Smith fans.... Nazarian's vital themes and engaging characters are sure to entertain." (Publishers Weekly)
