Patricia A. McKillip - The Riddle-Master's Game (1976 - 1979)

My review of Patricia A. McKillip's wonderful The Riddle-Master's Game has gone up at Fantasy Faction today. The trilogy, perhaps McKillip's best-loved work, is on a par with the excellent 'The Forgotten Beasts Of Eld', however while they share some thematic similarities, in particular the fascination with riddles, The Riddle-Master's Game is a work of great subtlety and beauty with its own distinct flavour.

Robert Holdstock - Mythago Wood & Lavondyss (1984, 1988)

This is late as I have been on holiday and then busy back at work, but my review of Robert Holdstock's two classics 'Mythago Wood' and 'Lavondyss' went up on Fantasy Faction. These books are firm favourites of mine, and I had been wanting to write something about them for a while, so I am thrilled that I got the chance to do so.
