Ballantine U7063 MISTRESS OF MISTRESSES vg
Mistress Of Mistresses
By E. R. Eddison
Cover by Keith Henderson
Come to the fabled land of Zimiamvia, mentioned in the author's previous volume The Worm Ouroboros. Here, "philosophers tell us that no mortal foot may tread it, but that souls do inhabit it of the dead that were great on Earth . . ." Here they forever live, love, do battle, and die to wake again.
Lessingham: artist and poet, king of men, lover of women, is dead. But from Aphrodite herself, Mistress of Mistresses, he has earned the promise both to live again in Zimiamvia and of her own perilous future favors.
The volume recounts his first day in that strange Valhalla, painted on a cosmic canvas with a huge vocabulary pallette. Enjoy!
