NPR Summary

In an alternate version of our 19th century, an enormous dragon lies dormant, curled around a town called Teocinte. Lucius Shepard has been writing about Teocinte and the dragon Griaule for years — but this posthumously published novel is his first full-length exploration of Griaule and his world, tying together a career's worth of shorter stories.
