Found this one in my mail box yesterday afternoon. Poul Anderson is a classic SciFi writer, and one of my favorites. Thanx SunSign6 :o)

From Publishers Weekly:

Less a novel than a series of short stories and novelettes tied together by their subjects, this volume tells of 11 "immortals": individuals who will not die of old age but who can, however, be killed. Anderson ( The Avatar ) brings proven storytelling abilities and research skills to chronicles that range from 310 B.C. to a centuries-distant future. Many of the stories describe an immortal's first awareness of his or her difference, and flight from accusations of witchcraft; other tales relate chance encounters between immortals; a few simply tell a good yarn. The penultimate chapter tells of the eight survivors coming together in present times; the last portrays a future where science has extended everyone's life, creating a world vastly different from what the immortals had expected.

Just a note to let you know this book has not disappeared into the void. I started it today. Since I am a slow reader, I may finish it by the first of the year, unless it is exciting. Then, I might finish it by the week before the first of the year *WINK*. I apologize for holding onto it for so long.

This is definitely an "EPIC" novel, if "EPIC", in this case refers to the novel being reeeaaaallllyyy long. It is a good story, and a great history lesson, but it seemed to go on , and on. I have to admit, though, I now look differently at my neighbors to make sure they are aging with me. Of course, that's a little difficult with some of the women ;o)
