The Monstrous Regiment

by Storm Constantine

Artemis, a world named for a huntress goddess, has been isolated from other human colonies for hundreds of years. Originally settled by a group of feminists and their male supporters, whose aim was to create an equal Utopian society, Artemis has drifted away from those ideals. A cruel matriarchy has risen to replace the oppressive patriarchy the original colonists sought to escape.

Corinna Trotgarden has grown up in Vangery, a ranch situated on the sprawling marshes, where life is still more like the original settlers’ dream. But Corinna is soon to be sent to the capital city of Silven Crescent, to the household of General Carmenya Oralien. Rumours persist on the marsh of political unrest in the city, and how some residents want to resist the draconian changes that its ruler, Yani Gisbandrun, wishes to force upon the people. Can it be possible these changes will eventually surge over the marsh-dwellers too, who would be unable to oppose the might of Gisbandrun’s militia?

A chance meeting with a fugitive from the city, the rebel Elvon L’Belder, draws Corinna into this unrest. From that moment, her move to Silven Crescent is destined to be something other than what her mother had planned for her. Change is coming, and whatever the outcome, it is sure to be devastating.

The world is mostly unexplored; there are stories too of mysteries upon the marsh and beyond, including sightings of strange beings. While Corinna faces the harsh realities of city life, and her connection with the dissidents, Elvon L’Belder and the people of Vangery attempt to secure assistance from an unimaginable source; the mythical original inhabitants of Artemis. Are these creatures simply a dream, or do they really exist? And even if they are found, will they be prepared to help the interlopers on their world before it is too late?

Originally published in 1989, this new edition of Storm Constantine’s sf novel has been re-edited and revised for its Immanion Press release.
