  • Review: "The Knight of Swords"|New York Times Sunday Book Review

    From Today's (10/18) New York Times Sunday Book Review, Charles Yu writes:

    Although Michael Moorcock’s THE KNIGHT OF THE SWORDS (Titan, paper, $9.95), the first book in the Corum series, was first published over four decades ago, the newly reissued story doesn’t feel dated so much as impervious to the aging process. Moorcock’s novel is fantasy of the high kind: faraway and long ago and weirder than you expect it to be.
    For the rest of the review:

    Short and largely negative, but thanks for the tip.

      I think the NYTimes really does its readers a disservice with these hit-and-run reviews. They try to cover five or six books and still show some critical insight, but most end up wildly uneven.
