Editorial Reviews

'The greatest and most convincing writer of invented worlds that I have read.' - J.R.R. Tolkien'A new literary species, a new rhetoric, a new climate of the imagination. Every episode, every speech, helps to incarnate what the author is imagining.' - C.S. Lewis'An eccentric masterpiece. Eddison is unequalled in the vigour, the vividness, the passionate intensity of his imagining, the brooding sadness that underlies it, and the cockeyed magnificence of his language.' - Ursula K. Le Guin'A fantasy epic written in a lush, thick, cod-Elizabethan style that started off irritating and then became part of the fun.' - Neil Gaiman'The greatest high fantasy of them all.' - Robert Silverberg'A grand fantasy adventure.' - Piers Anthony'Authentic dream, fantastic far beyond invention and natural beyond all possibility of unbelief.' - Arthur Ransome'A romance of a world that never was . its landscapes are magnificent. One lives in it.' - Hilaire Belloc
