Tanith Lee paints with words. Her images are poetic and colorful. Her stories are inventive and unique. I'm not saying that she is perfect. In a career as prolific as hers, there are bound to be some tales, some books, that don't shine as brightly. To me, this is not one of those. I enjoyed these stories just as much in this second reading as I did when I read the original "Cold, Grey Stones" collection some five years ago.
My favorite of all of these stories is "En Foret Noire," and even though I'd read the tale once before, its ending took me by surprise again.
En Forêt Noire is taken from a song Ms Lee’s mother would sing, En Forêt Noire je vais les soirs, into the dark forest I go in the evenings. Ahh, and what a dark forest it is, the townsfolk from miles around have stories to tell. Once you enter you never return; that is until Louis is challenged at gunpoint to enter with his conniving future brother in law.
In The Country Of The Blind we are reminded of the old adage ‘never judge a book by its cover’.
“Have you ever wanted to kill anyone? Probably you have.”, so opens the story Killing Her. Tooty Wilson had a way of grating on her co-worker’s nerves; it got so bad that action was needed!
The Frost Watcher is an eerie thought provoking tale of what’s to come. Durdyn a young shepherd encounters a Watcher one evening while tending his sheep. He is given a warning that a frost like no other is coming. Trying to tell others of the warning gets him nowhere and he eventually keeps it to himself. Fast forward seven years and life goes on but the warning still lingers in the back of Durdyn’s mind until the day he meets Crorth an old man who lives up in the hills in a cave. The beginning of the end has been set in motion.
Rather than review each story, I'll leave you with these to ponder and perhaps you'll be enticed enough to purchase the book!
