4.0 out of 5 stars A master's magnum opus., February 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Night's Master (Tales from the Flat Earth) (Paperback)
Tanith Lee is one of the great masters of fantasy fiction, and the "Flat Earth" cycle is arguably her finest work (though the "Paradys" and "Venus" cycles are right up there, too). The new Norilana/TaLeKa editions are lush reprints of this cycle, with Night's Master the first out (they are also issuing her other works as well in uniform editions). The best news is that down the line will be two wholly new Flat Earth titles, the novel Earth's Master and the story collection The Earth is Flat.

Lee's fantasies tend to be rich in mood, usually somber and exotic mood, but she's no one-trick pony: her characters are deep and full-fleshed, and her plots Byzantine (sometimes more or less literally) amd her prose suitably rich without ever being purple.

Finally, none of her work is cookie-cutter: you will not have been to the lands of the Flat Earth before, or anything like them, in anyone else's fat fantasy. Read: enjoy.
