Good, but not that good,
This review is from: The Riddle-master of Hed (Orbit Books) (Paperback)
I first bought and read this book around 20 years ago, when Fantasy books were few and far between, but you could see the signs of the mass market proliferation that was soon to come. i read this book and thought it was OK, nothing special. I've never re-read it since.
Now, too my surprise, i find it's going to be re-issued as one of the "Fantasy Masterworks" series. I can't see the rationale behind that. I mean, it's not a bad book... but it's not a marvellous book and surely it should be to be a "Masterwork"
Buy it by all means. But don't expect something amazing.
