Praise for Robert Silverberg and the Novels of Majipoor

"A brilliant concept of the imagination." — Chicago Sun-Times

"An imaginative fusion of action, sorcery, and science fiction." — The New York Times Book Review

"Majipoor is probably the finest creation of Silverberg's powerful imagination." — *Booklist


This collection brings together all of the Majipoor stories that had not been previously published in book form. It fills in various niches of the planet's history, including some figures who had been mentioned in previous stories. Unlike Majipoor Chronicles, there is no framing story woven between the individual tales to tie them together, but it's not missed at all.
