Lyonesse is Magic
The word ‘Lyonesse’ has always breathed mystery and enchantment. Now, in this brilliant epic novel of high fantasy, one of the world’s greatest imaginative writers has created a totally compelling saga of Magic, its practitioners, witnesses – and victims. The warlocks, witches, magicians, faerie folk, demons, trolls ans imps of the Elder Isles – from whence the ancestors of King arthur fled to Britain – are as real as the kings, queens, knights, peasants and other humans who so vividly populate Jack Vance’s pages. To read this spellbinding book is to enter a world and time of eerie beauty, savage strangeness and bizarre occult adventure. LYONESSE is, indeed, magic.
