Wonderful Book by a Wonderful Author!
am 17. April 2014 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Tanith Lee (R.I.P.) had one of the most imaginative and creative minds. I don't like everything that she had written, but I really enjoyed this book of short stories. My favorite tales within this volume are re-imaginings of some classic fairy tales like Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. If you like the dark and twisted, then you will really enjoy this book and other works by Lee.

I still remember the first time I picked up a Tanith Lee book. Enthralled, bewitched and seduced by her vivid and sometimes stark images set to empathic poetry in motion, I set off in search of the next book, and the next. That first book was this. The late, great Tanith Lee was a prolific and extraordinarily versatile writer with a huge body of work, and this collection of stories starts at the almost-middle beginning. And her short stories, especially, sing and defy expectation everytime. For example, her sci-fi pieces are just dripping with human experience in ways that make you forget the limitations of genre and indeed, the trappings of genre (myth, YA, horror, fairy tale, contemporary, historical, etc) fall quickly away as you enter her fully formed worlds. You come back changed. Thank you, Ms. Lee.

Bright Burning Tigers
am 1. Oktober 2006 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
It's too bad this anthology is out of print, and hopefully the short stories here (all from the first half of the 1980s) can be found in more modern collections. Tanith Lee is usually regarded as a master of gothic fantasy, and most of the tales here illustrate her considerable strengths in that genre. Great examples, out of many, include "Cyrion in Wax," "The Dry Season," and the especially cheeky "Odds Against the Gods." But longtime fans know that Lee has also experimented rewardingly in other genres, and this collection offers several great examples of Lee's forays into science fiction and horror. Her sci-fi work is especially empathetic and dwells on humanity rather than aliens and spaceships, like in "A Day in the Skin (or the Century We Were Out of Them)" and "Written in Water." We find examples of Lee's exercises in vampires and werewolves in "Nunc Dimittis" and "Wolfland," respectively, and chilling human horror in "Magritte's Secret Agent" and "A Room with a Vie." Of outstanding interest in this collection are a couple of very disturbing experiments in the dark side of Hindu mythology, "Foreign Skins" and "Tamastara," while the Bradbury-like adventure tale "Bright Burning Tiger" is a real surprise for Lee fans of any stripe. If you're new to Tanith Lee and seek a strong introduction to her work, or if you're a longtime fan wishing to rediscover her varied strengths, then pick up an old copy of this collection, or find a newer one with short stories from the same time period.

This was the first thing I ever read by Lee, found purely by accident a long time ago, and it's a shame that it's out of print in a *serious* way... These are some of the wildest, most vivid, sensual, occasionally very disturbing stories in the universe! The different stories follow a theme of colors, and each one seems done out in a slightly different genre (subgenre, even?) than the others: fairy-tale, sword'n'sorcery, modern fantasy, dark erotica, fable. I haven't even laid eyes on a copy of this for over ten years, and "Malice in Saffron" still rings in my head... Remarkable stuff.

True to its title
am 23. Mai 1999 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This collection of short fiction is bound to have something to interest any reader of Fantasy. If you're new to Fantasy or Tanith Lee, this collection will definately give you insight into the spectrum of the genre and Lee's talent. Since some of the stories come from other collections that share a common theme or concept, they can be confusing standing alone, but are still likely to entertain any reader. The best quality is that the stories can be read and re-read, and still maintain their intrigue.
