Thessaly

Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Jo Walton’s literary fantasy Thessaly Trilogy is a unique exploration of the human condition as gods and humans meet in an epic encompassing sandy Mediterranean shores, Victorian England, Renaissance Italy, and the farthest reaches of the galaxy–arguing, fighting, and loving in their never-ending struggle to understand one another.

“A trilogy which began as an almost-dry intellectual exercise ends as a glorious kitchen sink of genre, combining philosophy, time travel, aliens, and the gods.” —Kirkus Reviews on Necessity
