After beholding the destruction of the Well-Built City, physiognomist Cley is now a simple healer seeking peace and atonement in the happy village of survivors. When the town falls into a deadly sleeping sickness, Cley must make a dangerous trip to the ruins of Citynow, beset by mechanical birds and werewolves, to seek out an antidote. The evil Master Below is still alive, but an accidental exposure to the sickness that he created has put him into a coma.
With the help of Belows adopted demon son, found in the wreckage of the laboratory, Cley ventures into the mind and intricate memories of Below to search for a cure. Cley will encounter wonders and dangers undreamed of in the second installment of this classic trilogy.
"The awe-inspiring historical concept of the memory palace is put to grand use in Jeffrey Ford's fascinating novel Memoranda, the sequel to his World Fantasy Award-winning, New York Times Notable Book, The Physiognomy." (Amazon.com review)
"Startling and beautifully rendered." (Kirkus Reviews)
