Galabras Nachecko is a necromancer in Golathreon, who is asked by Tyber Walthus, the Duke’s seneschal, to obtain the kra of a notorious land-pirate at the moment of death; it turns out that the pirate might have knowledge of a certain jewel that had been in Walthus’s family for generations and that he had lost when giving it to his fiancee, who apparently died in a cave-in some years earlier. Unfortunately for Nachecko, the kra is not very helpful in this quest; in addition, one of the Duke’s special police or “sniffers” wants to know what Walthus is up to considering that he had never told the Duke about this jewel. Even worse, the jewel turns out to be an artifact left by the Demiurge after its use in the creation of the universe, and that artifact doesn’t want to be found, just wants to be left alone…. Matthew Hughes has taken on the role of heir to Jack Vance with respect to the universe that Vance created many eons ago; while I have never taken to Vance’s writing, I love Hughes’s, and this stand-alone novel is a good example of his inventiveness, humour and world-building that could serve as an in to his other works or as a great new addition to those of us who already know his oeuvre; highly recommended!… (lisätietoja)

Cascor is a Discriminator whom we first encounter in a Raffalon story, set in Mr. Hughes’s version of Jack Vance’s Dying Earth; this anthology contains all of the Raffalon stories that feature Cascor, as well as about four stories in which Cascor himself is the main character and two new stories that center more on Margolyam, a sorceress who works with Cascor. The last two, “Tome-Tickler” and “The Touch,” are original to this volume; the others have been previously published in F&SF. I like Cascor - he’s often a pawn of the gods (or godlings), but manages to maintain a sense of himself most of the time and that self is quite committed to his work. He also, over the period of time covered in these stories, comes to see Margolyam and his other co-workers as a makeshift family of sorts, even having all of them live together. I especially liked the new stories, though, because the first provides a new side to Margolyam that we had not previously seen and the second gives her backstory, which is quite satisfying. In his introduction, Mr. Hughes says that these are the last stories that he will set in this world (he’s been writing historical fiction lately), but I hope he changes his mind because I for one would love to read more about these characters. You don’t need to be familiar with this universe before starting these stories and if you like them, you can be happy with the knowledge that there are a number of other books that are available so you can visit that world many more times in the future; recommended!… (lisätietoja)

Superheroes, demons, hell on strike, damsels in distress, nefarious deeds, and poker. What's not to like?

Guth Bandar is an apprentice noõnaut, studying at the Institute of Historical Inquiry, an entity devoted to the noösphere, what psychologists called the Unconscious and the students call the Commons. That human sphere has been studied for millenia and there is nothing new to be found there, or so the scholars think. It is unfortunate for Bandar that he is about to prove them all wrong, particularly as nobody will believe him…. Matthew Hughes has a number of great sf/f series, generally set in the penultimate era of Old Earth, close in time to Jack Vance’s Dying Earth universe. I am more fond of other series characters than I am of Guth Bandar, but the stories themselves, originally published in F&SF, are quite complex and entertaining. This book contains those tales, including a very long novella, and while there are no previously unpublished stories here, it’s nice to have them all in one volume; recommended!… (lisätietoja)
