|The Enemy Papers
Beginning with "Enemy Mine" and The Tomorrow Testament, and continuing with The Last Enemy, the Enemy Mine series spans almost the entirety of my writing career to date. There have been a lot of changes in me and in publishing since "Enemy" first appeared in 1979, but there is a strange continuity in the universe that saw three hundred worlds at war as Dracs and humans worked out over the years the steps of their deadly dance.
I am excited at presenting the entire series in one volume, this time with "Enemy Mine" greatly expanded, in addition to fragments of the Drac bible, The Talman.
Incidentally, the stories of The Talman have never before been published. It is a bible by aliens set on an alien planet, about aliens and for alien readers. With The Enemy Papers, now there there is a unique choice: If you read the selections from The Talman first, you will get to read "Enemy Mine" from the perspective of a Drac; If you read "Enemy" first, you can read it from the perspective of a human.
I have included the Drac vocabulary in this volume, in addition to two very different essays. "On Alien Languages" tells some of the funny business of making up alien languages in science fiction. "Run Drac Run" tells about the origins and continuation of the Enemy Mine series. This volume saw the first publication of the final novel of the trilogy, The Last Enemy.
Containing The Myth of Aakva, The Story of Uhe, much of The Story of Shizumaat, and fragments from other books. Eleven thousand years of wisdom in convenient, magazine length stories.
