Synopsis

Hugo-nominated and Nebula-winning Novella

This award-winning fantasy novella explores the conjunction of invocation, deep time, and culture shock. It was originally published in Subterranean Magazine, in the summer of 2010, and subsequently republished in Heiresses of Russ 2011: The Year's Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction, The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy 2011 and The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, Vol. 5.

Naeva - the Lady of the story's title - is a sorceress in a matriarchy. After being fatally injured, she is persuaded to allow her spirit to be bound, so that she can be summoned and thus continue to advise her queen. However, after the queen has herself died, Naeva continues to be summoned... first by the queen's successor, and then by people from civilizations millenia later.
