Nightscapes, the author's sixth story-collection, again shows the great range of his imagination. Here is an avowedly Gothic tale ("A Servant of Satan") which begins with necromancy in 19th century Paris, but soars in the company of soulless immortals to the very ends of time and space. There are stories of madness, unreality, and sexual horror, set in the present day; also mysteriously luminous tales of visionaries and rogue gods, set in realms which cannot be found on any map. And, don't overlook the world's most complaining vampire, "Kvetchula," and the "Smart Guy" who bluffed his way all the way to the heart of the Ultimate Conspiracy, There's even a mordant sequel to Shakespeare's The Tempest and a phantasmagorical adventure of the lunatie sage Tom O'Bedlam.
