Review quote

"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
