Recent Reading: Patricia A. McKillip

  • The Forgotten Beasts of Eld, by Patricia A. McKillip, copyright 1974; ISBN 0-425-06595-2.

    This was the first book by Patricia A. McKillip that I remember reading, I think, and though it was The Riddlemaster of Hed that really confirmed McKillip as my favorite author at the time, this book certainly contributed to my liking. I find McKillip's writing lyrical and her settings evocative.
