Reviews of Light Fantastic, the (1986)
Review by Lilliana (2003-03-12)
The matter with this book is more ontological than anything else. Is the appearance of a big Red Star the premonition of doom or not? Will the trolls kick my head through my chest, or not? Will I ever find my Luggage again? Important questions raised in a minute's notice because the world (which is a disk and glides through space atop four elephants who stand on the shell of a giant turtle that presently seems to have a death wish) is seemingly coming to its end. Or is it? If you think you've caught a bad case somewhere around Ephebe, and you can't seem to shake it off, read this book, which ontologically speaking has never been written, or has it?
