    Available to American readers for the first time, this landmark collection gathers four groundbreaking fantasy classics from the acclaimed author of Light. Set in the imagined city of Viriconium, here are the masterworks that revolutionized a genre and enthralled a generation of readers: The Pastel City, A Storm of Wings, In Viriconium, and Viriconium Nights. Back in print after a long absence, these singular tales of a timeless realm and its enigmatic inhabitants are now reborn and compiled to captivate a whole new generation.

    Story

    Yep - if enigmatic means boring, then that's the right word for this one - I was lost. Either this is really boring or it's completely over my head. I found myself yawning and my mind wandering - could not focus on this to save my life! I am a devout listener and have never failed to finish a book but could not force myself to pay attention to Viriconium long enough to tell what was going on. I even had my boyfriend give it a try to see if I was just missing something. He got lost within the first few paragraphs. I kept beating my head against the wall because Neil Gaiman recommended it! I have no idea what the author was even reaching for here and kept having to go back to read the publisher's description to figure out what I was supposed to be listening to! I wanted my credit back on this one.
