Cigany is the gypsy, stalking the city in a cloud of magic.
Stepovich is the seasoned cop, who keeps finding dead bodies in the gypsy's wake.
The Fair Lady is Queen of the Underworld, drawing them both into her murderous web...until only the gypsy's broken memories stand between Stepovich's beloved city and the Lady's dark designs.
Part crime novel, part magic, Steven Brust and Megan Lindholm's The Gypsy is "a powerful and memorable fantasy" (Publishers Weekly).
Praise for The Gypsy
“This combination fantasy and police procedural (Wambaugh on acid) is several cuts above the troll-and-unicorn dreck that floods the genre.” —Booklist (starred review) on The Gypsy
“Enthralling.” —Publishers Weekly on The Gypsy
“Fantasy, yes, but it breathes a spirit congenial to the SF reader too...every science fiction reader who dreams of long light years passing, strange peoples, wild adventure. Brust and Lindholm have given SF its gypsy god.” —Analog on The Gypsy
“A spirit of righteous mysticism makes The Gypsy a compelling read.” —New York Review of Science Fiction
