Reviews of With Morning Comes Mistfall (1973)
Review by clong (2004-12-03)
This was one of my favorite stories from the Song for Lya collection. It is set on a sparsely inhabited planet of surreal beauty. Rumors that wraithlike beings inhabit the planet and, on very rare occasions, attack humans, add a bit of danger and excitement to the perceived attractiveness of the planet. When a scientist visits the planet to debunk these rumors, the long term impact is profound.
