HIGH COUCH OF SILISTRA PDF

I have begun three times to tell this story, and three times I have been interrupted. This, then, the fourth attempt, will surely prove successful. Perhaps you have heard of Silistra, the planet that was catalyst to the sexual revolution in the year twenty-two thousand, seven hundred and four Bipedal Federate Standard Time, or of the Silistran serums that lengthen life and restore vitality in virtually any bipedal life form, or perhaps you have at some time contracted the services of a Silistran telepath, or a precognitive, or a deep reader. It is possible that you have in your own home the scintillating, indestructible web-cloth woven by our domestic arachnids, or have seen holograms of our golachits, those intelligent builder-beetles who exude from their mouths a translucent, superhard substance called gol and create from this gol, under the guidance of the chit-guards, the formidable and resplendent structures in which we live and work. And perhaps you have seen no web-cloth, no gol, never been ill, and are not interested in sex. If so, you may never have heard of Silistra.

Special Requests. The ancient Silistrans used their impressive technology to scour their own homeworld. A handful survived in underground refuges. When the surface of Silistra recovered and the descendants of the survivors emerged from their warrens, they vowed to never again become dependent on technology.

Silistrans are hardy, long-lived, and thanks to that ancient war, infertile. High technology might have dealt with the fertility issue. The Silistrans chose an entirely different solution. If any Well woman is impregnated by a client, the man gains possession of her and all the wealth she has earned in the Well.

Few are so lucky. Well-Keepress Estri is an orphan. Her mother died in childbirth. The identity of her father is a mystery. How much of a mystery becomes clear when she receives a message from her long dead mother. Between Estri and that destiny is a difficult quest that will take her away from her familiar Well and across the harsh, violent world that is Silistra. Along the way wait humiliation, sexual assault, brutality, and always, the possibility of a violent death.

But she will also encounter love and, unexpectedly, the companionship of true gods. Zero, as far as I can tell. There is enough background info, however, to indicate that birth rates are well below replacement levels.

Janet Morris has an interesting publication history. Have a chart. Unless my editor turns it into a graph. Ace and DAW also used her fiction generally in concert with authors better known than Morris is today. That pattern might mean she wrote quickly and delivered reliably, which editors and publishers approve, but ultimately sold poorly, of which publishers disapprove.

The sudden road-bump in her career appears to be coincident with the improved sales tracking software that savaged the careers of a number of mid-list authors.

The resurgence? That would be ebooks, I bet. This is one of them. To quote a comment from my editor to a now-deleted footnote:. Some of you may be reaching for the buy button on Amazon on the strength of the above.

This book was intended to be sold in mainstream stores, not grotty Times Square adult book stores. The novel is extremely rapey, but also soft-focus. Estri may have a great destiny and she may set out on a grand adventure. Estri is remarkably passive. Along the way, she is dependent on a variety of male protectors, most of whom treat her abominably. Happily for the men, Estri secretly likes abuse, as do all women or so she claims and happily for Estri, it all works out in the end.

As witnessed by the success of Fifty Shades of Grey and bodice-rippers in general. At least in the consensual BDSM scene.

High Couch of Silistra

Somewhere deep in the heavens of a terribly distant tomorrow was the one man whose will conquered her own. How many of those words are in bonkers language? Most of them? It gives us a fair idea of what to expect in the rest of the novel. I mean, I get it, creating a world is fun. Coming up with animals and customs and deities and stuff, all of that is great.
