These two volumes conclude the story begun in Neveryona and Tales of Neveryon (Classic Returns, LJ 1/94). LJ 's reviewer asserted that Flight "may be the most successfully experimental work yet from an author for whom language and story are inseparable" ( LJ 4/15/85). "Delany's artistry as both writer and storyteller rises to the surface" in Return , originally published as The Bridge of Lost Desire ( LJ 9/15/87).

It is interesting to me that so much fantasy is obviously more inspired by the medieval era than any other, in which disease and plague were significant factors in the lives of everyone and shaped the imagination of the people of that day, and yet disease and plague go virtually unmentioned, certainly rarely detailed, in most published fantasy writing.
This is not to suggest that disease or plague is a major factor throughout the four-book Nevèrÿon series. But in focusing one of the Nevèrÿon tales, and a particularly haunting one, specifically on disease--including its social context in a pre-modern, urban, fantasy setting--and in managing to make that tale so compelling, Delany becomes all the more noteworthy as a fantasy writer.
