    1. This was a 20-years-later re-read of a fantasy I remember liking in high school, one of Terri Windling's Ace Fantasy Specials.It opens with a somewhat deadly prologue involving Gods, in which the Trickster Rimble playfully meddles with humanity, creating the novel's most interesting concept, landdraw, in which children are born with characteristics metaphorically resembling the land in which they were conceived. Piedmerris, born in a peaceful, fertile area, are plump and placid, and have a psych [...]


    2. I very much enjoyed this book. The world-building and mythos is fantastic, as well as the characterization of the nine main characters. The idea of a person's general outlook on life and skills being based on where they were born is very neat, and can cause interesting things like a parent from area A and a parent from area B having a child that is from area C. There are some crude humor moments, and some things are for sure NSFW, but it was a fantastic read.


    3. An "Ace Fantasy Special", this book has a novel setting, an interesting geography, and well thought-out societies. On the negative side, half the characters tend toward the bland, the author has a tendency to explain situations unnecessarily (and sometimes more than once), and if one is going to have a literal deus ex machina ending one had better make it more exciting than a maypole dance.The negative side starts first, unfortunately, in the prologue where a meeting of the Greatkin (not quite g [...]


    4. I found this little book for $2 in a tiny used bookstore and I bought it because of the promising title, and I thought my little sister would enjoy it. Warning: read this before you gift it. I decided that my 12-year-old sister was not old enough for this particular book. I don't recall why I believed it was a children's book, but I was certainly wrong.I loved the introduction to this book, and it pulled me in like no fantasy I've read in a long time. (Of course, it was from the late 80s.) I was [...]


    5. Well, sort of. I'm a sucker for Trickster tales, and I picked this up on that account. I didn't get very far into it. The beginning was crude and vulgar, with no humor at all. Maybe it gets better further in. But I'm not likely to find out. Is it too much to ask that a Trickster tale be funny?
