A book of two halves,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Viriconium: "Pastel City", "Storm of Wings", "In Viriconium", "Viriconium Nights" (FANTASY MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
This is a collection of Harrison's Viriconium writings. It is definitely a book of two halves - In Viriconium and Viriconium Nights are superb - they're atmospheric, evocative and enthralling and I've re-read them a number of times. The first two parts though are fairly average Fantasy which are okay but not memorable. This collection is superb value and is worth it for the last half and I believe it may be the only collection currently in print. Harrison is undoubtedly one of Britain's most gifted writers and is severly underrated.
