Staff Reviews


Whatever you suppose fantasy means (paint-by-number landscapes, a panoply of imitation Legolases) this isn't it. It's the story of a scheming kitchen-boy's precipitous rise and fall, filled to the brim with doomed lords! Vicious knives! Hungry owls! And the word umbrageous! The Gormenghast books blur the real and extra-real, the gothic with the Modern, Kafka with Forster with Nabokov. This book is for the impressionable youth who needs to move beyond Tolkien-- and it's for the reader of serious-stories-only! who must yet learn the uncanny is realer than the real.

— Emily
