       Additional Information  
     
      As this novel begins, the peaceful village of «iron faces conquest and domination by the army of Myetra, as led by a cruel prince. The Myetrans subdue «iron, killing many and enslaving the rest.

    But Rahm escapesóand then befriends one of the fearsome Winged Ones, humanoids with batlike wings. Meanwhile, led by the young village garbage collector and an itinerant singer, the «ironians resist where they can, as the Myetran lieutenant Kire struggles with his conscience and tries to ease the «ironians' burden.

    They Fly at «ironóappearing here in its first paperback publicationóoffers "vintage Delany in his finest fantasy mode" (Ursula K. Le Guin).
