Praise

“Silverberg, in Lord Valentine’s Castle, introduced the sprawling planet of Majipoor…through the eyes of an innocent: a deposed king stripped of his memory seeing the several alien races and delicately eerie overgrowth of his home planet as if for the first time…Majipoor Chronicles used the…device of an experience recorder to give us a time-lapse picture of Majipoor through the centuries. Now Valentine Pontifex whirls that cumulative information into action, the lazy pace through time and space giving way to a dance of conflicting emotions and political intrigue. Both the world and Lord Valentine have matured, and the trilogy becomes whole in a way that the form rarely achieves.”—Village Voice

“There’s an almost hypnotic grandeur to the thoughtful way Silverberg weaves the strands of the story together, effortlessly juggling the various motifs, while enhancing the central characters’ solidity. Taken as a single work, the trilogy must now be judged the best of its type since Zelazny’s classic, Hugo-winning Lord of Light.”—Publishers Weekly
