The Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning novel joins the SF Masterworks list.
In an America where the miraculous is par for the course, where magic and myths are as real as shopping malls and television game shows, Jennifer Mazdan listens to the modern storytellers recite the tales of the Founders.
But when strange things start to happen and Jennie becomes pregnant - from a dream - she enters a struggle which threatens her own life and causes her to question everything she has ever learned.
Unquenchable Fire won the Arthur C. Clarke Award in 1989.
