Editorial Reviews

Review

"The best single example of prostitution used in fantasy is Janet Morris' Silistra series... Estri's character is most like that of Ishtar who describes herself as "'a prostitute compassionate am I'" because she "'symbolizes the creative submission to the demands of instinct, to the chaos of nature ... the free woman, as opposed to the domesticated woman'" -- Anne K. Kaler, The Picara: From Hera to Fantasy Heroine
.
"The amazing and erotic adventures of the most beautiful courtesan in tomorrow's universe" - Frederik Pohl
.
"Engrossing characters in a marvelous adventure." - Charles N. Brown, Locus Magazine
*****
     "[...] today I thought I'd look at one of the most successful fantasy debuts of all time, a series that became a huge international hit with its first release, launching the career of one of the most prolific fantasy writers of the late 20th Century: Janet Morris' The Silistra Quartet.
     The Silistra Quartet began with Janet's first novel, High Couch of Silistra [...] from Bantam Books in 1977 [,,,]  the far-future tale of the colony planet of Silistra, still recovering from an ancient war that left the planet scarred and much of the population infertile. With a dangerously low birth-rate, it's not long before the human colonists of Silistra develop a new social order, with a hierarchy based on fertility and sexual prowess.
     "High Couch of Silistra received a lot of positive press attention, and Janet released the sequel, The Golden Sword, the following year. It outsold the first one, and her career was well underway.
     "All told, there were four volumes in what came to be known as The Silistra Quartet [...].
     "High Couch of Silistra (1977) [...] The Golden Sword (1977) Wind from the Abyss(1978) The Carnelian Throne (1979)
     "The books were out of print for over 30 years... until Janet began reprinting them in brand new Author's Cut Editions through Perseid Press, beginning with High Couch of Silistra in September 2015." -- John O'Neill in Black Gate Adventures in Fantasy Literature

From the Inside Flap

On the planet Silistra, tomorrow's most beautiful courtesan unleashes the power of the gods . . .
She has the power to create planets, yet in his keep she is prisoner and lover.
He has taken her powers and her past, and given her his child in return.
On a still untenanted world of her making, he will challenge the gods who had fathered them to win control of his fate and their son.
