As a prequel to Silverberg's earlier Majipoornovels. Sorcerers of Majipoorprovides a deep, dark vision for the background of the conflict inLord Valentine's Castle and Valentine Pontifex.
Treachery and wizardry run rampant under the reign of the mighty Pontifex, as both the rightful and the unworthy heirs to the throne anxiously await his demise. Korsibar, son of the current Coronal, plots with his twin sister and ambitious companions to seize the power of the Coronal when his father ascends to the throne of the Pontifex.
