Drinking Sapphire Wine by Tanith Lee

Also by Tanith Lee. Glossary of Conventions, Institutions, and Devices. Although I have put the Four BEE into equivalent modern English, the Jang slang vocabulary which the writer uses pales in translation. I have therefore left the twenty or so odd words she/he employs untouched, and included a glossary, which provides an adequate if imperfect guide to what they mean

Drinking Sapphire Wine book. Four-BEE was an utopian city. Tanith Lee is a beautiful writer addressing the hard problems of consciousness in the ancient way - through storytelling. Inês Verkerk rated it it was amazing Jul 16, 2016.

Tanith Lee, September 19, 1947 - May 24, 2015 Tanith Lee was born on September 19, 1947 in London, England, the daughter of ballroom dancers. She attended various primary schools and had a variety of jobs, from file clerk and assistant librarian to shop assistant and waitress. Lee attended an art college for one year, but felt she would be better writing her ideas than painting them. Her first professional sale was "Eustace," a 90 page vignette which appeared in The Ninth Pan Book of Horror Stories in 1968. While Lee was working as an assistant librarian, she wrote a children's.

Tanith Lee wrote Don’t Bite the Sun in the early 1970s, and it represents the New Wave of science fiction, in which feminist writers played a substantial role. Fantastic fiction can be a way of describing an imperfect world that can provoke social change. part of a projected trilogy (with Drinking Sapphire Wine and an unwritten third novel); such long novels and multibook series became increasingly common during the 1970s

Book by Lee, Tanith
Reviews: 7
The Don't Bite The Sun/Drinking Sapphire Wine collection is Tanith Lee at her best- Even if some may not like her later work, the Four BEE books (Biting The Sun/Drinking Sapphire Wine) are some of the best character-driven storytelling within a science fiction setting, and I think they are some of the best explorations of the concept of immortality brought about by technology, the aimless search for pleasure, and what is the nature of a purpose-driven life.

That being said, I cannot understand the nonsensical initiative to publish the SECOND book as an E-book before the FIRST one. What kind of unthinking baboons are taking care of Lee's legacy? We need to have Don't Bite The Sun out, now, because far too much is set up and paid off in book two.

Stop doing the author a disservice and publish her work as it was intended to be read.
One of my all-time favorite books. I wish the book to which it's a sequel, Don't Bite The Sun, were available for Kindle in the US, but this one is well worth reading on its own. Fantastic sci-fi/fantasy setting, compelling characters, and some of Tanith Lee's best prose.
Long time Tanith Lee fan, I replaced a paperback copy that had fallen apart.
The Sphinx of Driz
Tanith Lee's best books together in one. Read it.
This is the best book I have ever read. It is short and sweet and to the point. I read it the first time when I was in my twenties and it still rang true to me in my fifties. So there you have it. I love the characters and the way things develop.

The "whole story" is a release called "Biting the Sun" and it is one of my all time favorite books, and would love to have it on kindle. It has an amazing premise, spectacular setting, and fantastic story.
It's one of the best sci-fi books i've read, dealing with the human problems of who and what you are, and most of all, the meaning of life and it's purpose. It's also a sad story (and of course, coming from Lee, romantic).
