Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

Recent Reading: Ramsey Campbell - Far Away & Never

After reading Flame and Crimson I went and bought several of the Sword & Sorcery books it discussed. Here is the first one I finished:

  • Far Away & Never, by Ramsay Campbell, copyright 1996, Necronomicon Press, ISBN-10: 0940884860.

    Enjoyable collection of stories, avoiding the flaws of many of the later sword & sorcery authors.

    The word-based magic in “The Stages of the God” and “The Song at the Hub of the Garden” had a flavor of its own, and “The Ways of Chaos” made me want to read Ghor, Kin-Slayer: The Saga of Genseric's Fifth-Born Son (G1, G2). [1]
