“This is fantasy of the Dunsany, Smith and Vance school, where breathless wonders spill off the page in spendthrift profusion. I can imagine a reader familiar only with the more prosaic, predictable and ‘realistic’ approaches to fantasy finding this novel to be the equivalent of a powerful dose of Black Lotus—dizzying, spellbinding, maybe even hallucinatory.”

–John Hocking on SEVEN PRINCES

NOTE: The Black Lotus is a powerful psychogenic plant with mystical properties found in the dark jungles of Stygia, according to Robert E. Howard’s legendary CONAN tales.
