New York Times best seller and winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards,
Dreamsnake is the haunting, critically acclaimed novel of an extraordinary woman and her dangerous quest to reclaim her healing powers.
When the healer Snake was summoned, she traveled the blasted landscape with her three serpents. From the venom of two of them, she distilled her medicines. But most valued of all was the alien dreamsnake, whose bite could ease the fear and pain of death.
When the dreamsnake is killed, Snake's powers as a healer are all but lost. Her only hope of finding another dreamsnake lies in a treacherous journey to the far-off Center City, where Snake will be pursued by two implacable followers: one driven mad by love, the other by fear and need.
"Anna Fields narrates with her usual mastery of the nuances of plot, mood, and character.... Fields adds to the haunting sense of reality and possibility that underlies the events set forth." (

Classic SF that's still fresh 30 year on
The narration completes this well-rounded title.
A slightly dark, very well detailed and believable story with rich characters and good pace. Well thought through and subtle in its future setting like hard sci fi should be. The narration was superb - Anna Fields has a charming yet soothing voice that can occasionally ignite characters.
