Book Description

A mysterious presence stalks the hallways of the Sky-King's palace, stealing dreams and condemning the king's dancers to a living death. The task of unraveling this mystery falls to young Aesva, the last living bearer of the Gift. But she is young; inexperienced; and the woman most able to assist her has already died.

Only Aesva can see the heartfires that flicker in the souls of the king's dancers. Only she knows that the heartfires are vanishing. Desperate to protect her loved ones, aided by a cadre of timid, silver-furred tamarins, Aesva must find a way to stop the unseen soul-thief that walks within the halls of the Sky-Palace.

This short story was originally published in Jim Baen's Universe and was recommended for a Nebula Award. The Gold Edition includes an author's note describing the origins of the story and the thematic underpinnings which give it meaning. Ms. Fulda discusses the genesis of the tamarins, the purpose of the Khondui, and her personal interpretation of the story's events.

About 18 pages or 6000 words.

Also available as part of the collection "The Breath of Heaven and Other Stories".

More About the Author

Nancy Fulda is a Hugo and Nebula Nominee, a Phobos Award winner and a Vera Hinckley Mayhew Award recipient. She is the first (and so far only) female recipient of the Jim Baen Memorial Award. Her short story "Movement" recently received a Readers' Choice award from Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine.

Praise from Reviewers:

"As engrossing and brief and clever as a Twilight Zone episode, Fulda's story hooks your attention from the first sentence and stays with you long past the startling, yet fitting, end." -- Tangent Online

"The Breath of Heaven -- essentially a retelling of the HAL 9000 story, but with a very different outcome -- with its intricate examination of directives was a quite plausible updating of the classic three laws of robotics, and in some ways outshone both Asimov and Clarke in the way the story unfolded." -- Pearson Moore, Sift Book Reviews

"Movement is an award-caliber story, and clearly a major breakthrough in the career of Nancy Fulda." -- Aaron Hughes, Fantastic Reviews Blog
