"Difficult to read, mysterious and complicated story, but also the best and most rewarding sci fi novel ever written. It is truly perfect, and it has ten great 'sequels' which are just as good."

"Dark, brutal, totally mindbending. This compulsively readable book takes in noodles, giant shopping malls, personal redemption and a vietnam war in hell. Totally unique."

"I read this on honeymoon, so I have fond memories of it anyway. Gaiman's best work, a contemporary fantasy that is funny, moving and compulsive. His 'stardust' is also a top read."
Tales Of The Dying Earth (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)
Tales Of The Dying Earth (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)
"A classic sci fi fantasy, which predates Flashman and Gene Wolfe, by being both incredibly inventive and hilariously funny at the same time."
