Just started Mortal Love by Elizabeth Hand. From the jacket...

Lush, thrilling, and erotically charged, a triumph of suspense & dazzling imagination, Elizabeth Hand's Mortal Love is an extraordinary work that sans more than a century, uniting genius past & present with strange, tensile strands of inspiration, obsession, & lust....

What connects these men--and others whose grand destinies are to imagine & create--is one woman. Eternal, unknowable, the very ideal of beauty & desirability, she exists somewhere beyond the boundaries of time, a sensuous dream of flesh & fantasy to inspire or destroy, an immortal lover... or an angel of death.

And it was in the SciFi/SF** section! This oughta be interesting. Big Grin

**Even the Public Library can't decide... some books were marked SF, some Sci Fi w/no particular rhyme or reason. The Santa Fe Library system also marks some of their mysteries w/ "?" instead of Mystery. Hilarious!
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
