Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available to American readers for the first time, this landmark collection gathers four groundbreaking fantasy classics from the acclaimed author of Light. Set in the imagined city of Viriconium, here are the masterworks that revolutionized a genre and enthralled a generation of readers: The Pastel City, A Storm of Wings, In Viriconium, and Viriconium Nights. Back in print after a long absence, these singular tales of a timeless realm and its enigmatic inhabitants are now reborn and compiled to captivate a whole new generation.

Review:

"The world that Harrison depicts is intricate and authentic, peopled with a multitude of strange yet lifelike characters — a combination which serves to make his richly imagined empire of Viriconium feel very real indeed....This omnibus collection from the author of Light is canon-reading for those who wish to know the genre's roots, as well as the heights, to which it can aspire." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Synopsis:
