Complex and interesting fantasy with many folklore themes,
This review is from: The Wandering Fire (Fionavar Tapestry (Paperback)) (Paperback)
Middle part of sub-Tolkien Holiday from Amerika trilogy, notable for interesting use material from teutonic and celtic myth, including sacrifice of young man to the sexual aspect of the Goddess. Also interesting use of the Wild Hunt, and integration of Matter of Britain material. What makes me think he was brought up on The Wierdstone of Brisingamen? Could it be because all the themes of that book are here in spades?
This, together with the rest of the Fionavar trilogy, is good, interesting and complex fantasy, but nothing like as good as Kay's later work, such as Tigana.
