The Book of Told: Mere Words
You have a combat position ... in the battle of words between a master author--and his rival. An inconceivable setting. A discovery. A betrayal. A war. A forfeit. A modification. An unimaginable battle. From ancient history ... to the Final Chapters
"In The Book of Told, K A Gunn blends lived experience with metahistory, tragedy with punning, technology and theology. Her story has too much life in it to be simple allegory, and reads as an extended meditation on the phrase, 'in the beginning was the Word.' Literary criticism is turned inside out, and it is possible that your life might be also." --Pastor R.D. Driver-Burgess, MTh
