The Real Story Summary

The Real Story by Stephen Donaldson

A new-cover reissue of the first book in the bestselling five-volume sf series created by the world-famous author of the Thomas Covenant chronicles - and acclaimed as the 'best work of his career'.

Crossing the Gap - faster-than-light travel - has become commonplace throughout explored space, and all of it is controlled by a single monolithic corporation, the United Mining Companies. At the farthest reaches of the UMC's fiefdoms The Real Story unfolds.

The story starts small, with a simple case of ore piracy, and focuses on three individuals: Angus Thermopyle, a pirate and murderer who will stop at nothing for personal gain; Morn Hyland, a brilliant young policewoman who has committed a horrifying act and who falls prey to Thermopyle; and Nick Succorso, a legendary star captain who may be the key to Morn's salvation... or her worst nightmare.

But The Real Story is not that simple. Through the lives of Angus, Morn and Nick, an entire world begins to unfold - a world of politics and betrayal, extraordinary developments, and a shadowy alien presence that lies on the other side of the Gap.

The Real Story Reviews

'The Gap series is the best work of his career. Donaldson displays a real and rare gift for depicting intrigue, deception, betrayal and the dynamics of the multiple double-cross, and the dizzyingly complex backstabbing arabesques of his cast of resourcefully vicious interstellar slimeballs make this series as funky, grungy and down-and-dirty as space-op ever gets. This sequence has me hanging by my thumbs waiting for the next instalment.'

About Stephen Donaldson

Stephen Donaldson's bestselling work includes two award-winning Thomas Covenant trilogies; two collections of short stories, Daughter of Regals and Reave the Just; and the two books in the Mordant's Need series, The Mirror of Her Dreams and A Man Rides Through.

'The Gap series is easily the most interesting thing he's done since the Thomas Covenant stories that made his name. In a year or two they'll be calling these classics.' The Dark Side
