About This Item

New York: Condé Nast Publications. Digest-size Magazine. 1979. 1st Edition. Very Good. John Varley's novel Titan is the first book in his Gaea Trilogy. It first appeared in print when it was serialized in the January, February, March, and April 1979 issues of Analog Science Fiction / Science Fact magazine with cover art (Jan) and eight interior illustrations by Paul Lehr. It won the 1979 Analog Award for Best Serial Novel or Novella, the 1980 Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel, was runner-up for 1980 Hugo Award for Best Novel, and was nominated for the Nebula and Ditmar awards.

Also includes "Breaking the Game" [Tales of Capitol] (#2 in Analog poll for 1979 best short story) by Orson Scott Card; "Songs of a Sentient Flute" (novelette) by Frank Herbert; "Can These Bones Live?" (Best Short Story in 1979 Analog poll, second runner-up for Hugo) by Ted Reynolds; "Duty, Honor, Planet" (novelette) by Michael McCollum.

Cirrocco Jones, captain of the spaceship Ringmaster, and her crew are captured by Gaea, a planet-sized creature who orbits around Saturn. They find themselves inside a bizarre world inhabited by centaurs, harpies, and constantly shifting environments and discover that Gaea has been watching television signals from Earth and is obsessed by movies from Hollywood's Golden Age.
