Editorial Reviews


''A surefire page-turner . . . a brilliant concept of the imagination.'' -- Chicago Sun-Times

''[A] heady blend of rigorous SF worldbuilding and the poetic sensibility of fantasy fiction . . . casts light on a variety of pertinent social concerns.'' --Sci Fi Weekly

''Robert Silverberg's writing and imagination soar with nary a false step. It is truly a extraordinary tale, well told. The story is enhanced by Stefan Rudnicki's nuanced reading. For a narrator with such a deep voice, Rudnicki is able to tweak his reading to provide a wide range of characters, from the dour Skandars to more delicate female characters . . . Highly recommended.'' -- SFFAudio.com

''[A] wonderful science-fiction tale . . . Rudnicki's excellent semi-voiced reading adds a great deal to the enjoyment of this tale. He has won numerous audiobook awards as a reader and as a producer, including a Grammy. He uses his sonorous voice effectively to capture the various personalities of Valentine and his multicultural friends.'' -- SoundCommentary.com

''A grand, picaresque tale . . . by one of the great storytellers of the century. Lord Valentine's Castle has everything.'' --Roger Zelazny

''The first installment of Silverberg's celebrated Majipoor Cycle makes for relaxing listening. In an unhurried bass voice, Stefan Rudnicki calmly escorts the listener through the expansively descriptive world of Majipoor . . . Rudnicki ably performs a myriad of characters, most notably the whimsical Lord Valentine.'' --AudioFile --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
