The first adventure in the Nebula Award–winning author’s “masterful SF trilogy” about the attempted colonization and terraforming of the planet Venus (Publishers Weekly). Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison‐filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad.

"Abbott offers a fruitful new way to read science fiction, one that also greatly enriches our understanding of western history and its impact on our collective imagination. Detailing the overlap of science fiction and western fiction - especially relating to their mutual interest in and concerns about frontier expansionism - he reveals an unsuspected common ground that informs the writings of both camps." "Reviewing the work of many Hugo and Nebula Award winners, as well as drawing upon popular film and television series (like the Buck Rogers serials), Abbott's study journeys across the far reaches of science fiction's universe."

The Nebula Award–winning author’s “masterful SF trilogy” is a multigenerational epic of human colonists terraforming the second planet from the sun (Publishers Weekly). Often compared to Kim Stanley Robinson’s acclaimed Mars trilogy, the three novels gathered here comprise the complete Venus saga by the author of The Shore of Women, “one of the genre’s best writers” (The Washington Post). The Venus Project—making the planet’s atmosphere habitable for humans—spans centuries and determines the fates of multiple generations. Venus of Dreams: Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison-filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad. Venus of Shadows: The Venus Project calls upon the strongest and most courageous to create a prosperous world in the dismal wilderness of Venus. Those who demonstrate the skill and passion to embark on this adventure must transform the barren planet in the midst of political and cultural unrest. When Risa and Benzi, children of Iris, find themselves in opposing forces on the battlefield, it is their love and perseverance that will determine the destiny of the new world. Child of Venus: Mahala Liangharad, a true child of Venus, conceived from the genetic material of the rebels and brought to birth only after their deaths, is seen as a beacon of hope in a colony still ravaged by the aftereffects of civil war. But her world is being torn apart by a drive for independence from Earth by the Venus colonists and rumors of a secret plan developed by the “Habbers,” cybernetically enhanced human dwellers of a mobile asteroid. A mysterious call from deep space offers Mahala a chance to fulfill her own destiny, along with the terrifying possibility of losing touch with everything she has ever known and loved.

Our dreams tell us about our lives - past, present and future. Through dreams our unconscious brings new insights and clarity to help us grow and develop, release blocked-off energy and urge us to greater creativity. For women everywhere, the symbol of Venus is a powerful key that helps to unlock the insights that dreams give to them. Venus represents the female psyche in its purest, most uncensored forms - wise woman, devouted mother, protector, innocent victim, stalked prey, devouring vampire, erotic lover - and she is found at some level in all women. Venus Dreaming is an engrossing study of women's dream life, packed with archetypes, dream examples and information on what women's dreams mean. It explains how to use the unique imagery of women's dreams to develop both emotional and spiritual awareness. It also provides women with a powerful awareness of how to understand and direct their personal relationships, sexuality, life cycles, emotional and physical health, their intuitive talents and innate creativity. This is essential and fascinating reading for women interested in their own self-development, and for those with a professional focus on women's health and well being.
