Hugo- and Nebula-winning Novella

The river of Mist, an almost living organism, divides the Empire in two. A few Ferries make dangerous and treacherous journeys across the Mist when they can, trusting in good fortune and the uncanny skills of those plying the trade.

A bridge across the Mist will greatly ease the suffering of those who risk crossing the river - but the last bridge builder sent by the Empire died while building it.

Kit now comes to the town of Nearside to complete the task left unfinished by the dead bridge builder. Will he be the man who finally bridges the Mist?
