The language of the originators defines reality, every word warping the world to fit its meaning. Its study transforms the mind and body, and is closely guarded by stodgy, paranoid academics. These hidebound men don't trust many students with their secrets, especially not women, and more especially not "madwomen." Polymede and her lover Erishti believe they've made a discovery that could blow open the field's unexamined assumptions, and they're ready to face expulsion to make their mark. Of course, if they're wrong, the language will make its mark on them instead...in Ruthanna Emrys's stunning, dark fantasy story, The Word of Flesh and Soul.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
