    30 odd years before Tolkein published The Lord of the Rings , a British woman named Hope Mirrlees wrote a fantasy called Lud in the Mist Neil Gaiman wrote an introduction to the edition I read and I can see that he meant every word His own Stardust draws very heavily on Lud in the Mist , especially in setting and tone Other recent novels that are reminisce

    I read this mostly because I loved the title and that the residents of Lud must be Luddites I also observed that Neil Gaiman, a favourite of mine, recommended it very highly Written in 1926, Lud in the Mist is old fashioned and encompasses some out of date ideas, but mostly it is a fairy story for adults and it has a lot of charm The author was obviously well e

    Neil Gaiman raved about this book, so I read it I wish I could have read it without knowing anything about it but I still liked it It was written in the 1920 s before fantasy tropes were so set in stone so it goes in directions you don t expect it to Also, it s as though the author never heard of the idea that fantasy is a juvenile and disreputable genre, so she tak

    Neil Gaiman calls this a little golden miracle of a book , and I can see why.The writing is beautiful, the themes thought provoking, and the book as a whole is just so engrossing and satisfying It has that old fashioned classical quality to it, but never feels stuffy besides the two chapters of info dumping in the beginning The characters may not have the depth of those

    Neil Gaiman made me do it Er, for those who don t know, Neil Gaiman touted Lud in the mist as one of the best yet most overlooked Fantasy novels of the twentieth century, and in my humble opinion he slightly, just slightly, oversold it Sure, it s a beautifully written book, and Fantasy notwithstanding, surprisingly timeless actually, it s pretty hard to believe it was written in 1926 ,

    Undeniably cute and obviously influential I feel Gaiman s whimsy and Feist s take on the eeriness of faerie Short, often acerbic or funny, full of imagination and a fascinating blend of fairy tale, detective novel and quest story, I think everyone who loves fantasy should stop by this book to see some of our roots However, like so much of important history, while I learned a lot, I am not s

    Of course, I come to this novel via Tim Powers, who quoted it quite tantalizingly and memorably in Last Call as one to which Scott Crane and his late wife often referred in their intimate shorthand with one another At one point Susan s ghost, or at least the chthonic spirt of alcohol that is impersonating Susan refers to a blackish canary canary as in the sense of a shade of yellow rather than t

    This is a tale of the relationship between Fairyland and ordinary life, which puts it at the heart of my favorite storytelling traditions Born during the late lifetime of fellow countryman George MacDonald relevant works Phantastes, Lilith , and just thirteen years younger than G.K Chesterton Orthodoxy , Mirrlees seems to write under the guidance of the same muse that led them It
