    ARISTOI byWalter Jon Williams (see his website)

    TOR Science Fiction, September, 1992

    Gabriel is an Aristoi, an elete nearly superhuman master with the power and ability to create whole worlds, great music, and wonderful love-making. When he stumbles across a threat to the entire existence of the social structure that nurtured him, and that allows billions of humans to live in peace, he must confront his deepest fears, and other Aristoi whose powers make Gabriel s appear insignificant.

    This long work (448 pages) creates a powerfully complete universe. Both Gabriel, the protagonist, and his antagonists are fully realized. To win, Gabriel must give up all of the tools that make him an Aristoi, one of the powerful, and find true strength within himself.
