Hugo Award winning story.

In search of the Aureate cities, Captain Rovic had brought the Golden Leaper halfway round the World. Weathering hurricanes and mutiny, he meant to do what no other ship's master had done: circumnavigate the glove and return to riches and glory. Then, on a distant, barbarous island, Rovic met a shipwrecked traveler who claimed to have come on an even longer voyage. But who could believe his tale - of a ship that sailed between the stars?
