I read Julian May's Pliocene Exile books long ago, and though I loved them, I confess I was a bit baffled by all the references to the rebellion, and to characters like Diamond Mask and Jack the Bodiless. So getting to edit (and read--at last!) the three books of the Galactic Milieu, which finally explain all those mysterious and tantalizing hints, was a real blast. They really do bring everything full circle, and I am more amazed than ever at a mind that could pull off such a thoroughly complex and rich cycle of stories. Just don't ask me to summarize them!
--Shelly Shapiro, Executive Editor
tury was drawing to a close, and metapsychic humankind was poised at last to achieve Unity -- to be admitted into the group mind of the already unified alien races of the Galactic Milieu. But a growing corps of rebels was plotting to keep the people of Earth forever separate in the name of human individuality. And the rebels had a secret supporter: Fury, the insane metapsychic creatrue that would stop at nothing to claim humanity for itself. Fury's greatest enemy was the mutant genius Jack the Bodiless, whose power it craved. But Jack would never be a tool for Fury . . .
And so it turned to Dorothea Macdonald, a young woman who had spent a lifetime hiding her towering mindpowers from the best mind readers of the Milieu. But she could not hide them from Fury -- or from Jack. Time and again she rejected their advances, unwilling to be drawn into the maelstrom of galactic politics or megalomaniacal dreams. And in the end, no one -- not Jack, not Fury, not even the Galactic Milieu -- would be a mat
