Seven stories of Majipoor from science fiction grand master Robert Silverberg

Hailed as "one of the most fully realized worlds of modern science fiction" (Booklist>), Majipoor is a planet unlike any other, with countless untold stories. Now, available for the first time in one volume, Silverberg presents seven tales that chronicle thousands of years of Majipoor’s history, from the arrival of the settlers of Old Earth to the expansion of vast cities to the extraordinary life of Lord Valentine. Within these stories lie the secrets of Majipoor - a wondrous world of incredible imagination.

Majipoor

At first, it was difficult to get into this story due to a lack of knowledge of the history of Majipoor, and the author's dedication to jargon and creative naming. But the author is also poetic, and that poetry, read by such a great storyteller, eventually grabbed my attention so that I was forced to accept that there were just some things I would not understand in this collection of stories. I also wondered how humanity could travel the stars and then seemingly lose technology (cars, planes, etc.), but also retain technology (scanners, recorders, the existence of Castle Mount), but perhaps this explanation is another part of the series. Two stories stuck out as beautiful; the story of how Aethan writes The Book of Changes, and the story of about the love between a wizard and her student. Forgive me, as I cannot remember the chapter titles. In any case, I highly recommend this book.

It was great to come home to Marjipoor

Great book, great narration. I love the entire series of books about Lord Valentine and the wonders of Marjipoor.

Best to have prior knowledge of Majipoor

of which i had but little. Nonetheless, even without such context, I enjoyed the tales (more accurately, the Tale) very much. I'm sure I'd be giving it all 5's had I read more Silverberg first. Which I shall now endeavor to do!
