The protagonist is Dorothea, a 21st Century woman with extraordinary metaphysical powers. It befalls her to defend Earth from Fury, an insane metaphysical creature determined to become the sole ruler of humanity. The 21st century was drawing to a close, and metapsychic humankind was poised at last to achieve Unity -- to be admitted into the group mind of the already unified alien races of the Galactic Milieu. But a growing corps of rebels was plotting to keep the people of Earth forever separate in the name of human individuality. And the rebels had a secret supporter: Fury, the insane metapsychic creatrue that would stop at nothing to claim humanity for itself. Fury's greatest enemy was the mutant genius Jack the Bodiless, whose power it craved. But Jack would never be a tool for Fury ... And so it turned to Dorothea Macdonald, a young woman who had spent a lifetime hiding her towering mindpowers from the best mind readers of the Milieu. But she could not hide them from Fury -- or from Jack. Time and again she rejected their advances, unwilling to be drawn into the maelstrom of galactic politics or megalomaniacal dreams. And in the end, no one -- not Jack, not Fury, not even the Galactic Milieu -- would be a match for the awesome powers of the girl who would come to be called Diamond Mask

This is a book for the many thousands of readers who have become entranced with Julian May's fantasy-science fiction quartet, The Saga of Pliocene Exile. That saga has become an international best-seller and has drawn much comment: "A richly inventive series ... drama or opera in the largest sense" . "Julian May has made a new and fresh masterwork in the genre and has irrevocably placed herself among the great of fantasy and science fiction" {Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine). "Of all the authors since The Lord of the Rings appeared, May has most closely matched J.R.R Tolkien's achievement" {San Francisco Chronicle). Over the course of the four volumes of The Many-Colored Land, The Golden Tore, The Nonborn King, and The Adversary, the story has become so rich, complex, and so peopled with characters from different parts of the Pliocene world, that a guide and commentary is called for. The Pliocene Companion offers a descriptive listing of all the characters in'the work, a chronology, the author's original maps, and three delightful interviews with May herself. Beyond that, it gives the reader a chance to explore further the surroundings of a world six million years in the past. The glossary gives information on metapsychology, on the futuristic science of the Galactic Milieu, and on the exotic world of the Tanu and Firvulag. In all, A Pliocene Companion is a must for followers of the Saga
