Guy G. Kay is one of my favorite authors. However, I thought the Fionavar Tapestry verged on unoriginal and dull. How many fantasy books have I read where a group of intelligent, resourceful modern-day young people get sucked into a medieval-esque fantasy world? Well... it's a lot. And I didn't think Kay's contribution to the oeuvre was particularly exceptional. But - don't let that turn you off the rest of his books, which are gorgeously written, strikingly original, subtle and bold. ( )

This is an omnibus volume covering GK's first literary efforts. A fantasy set in a sort of Fantasy role-playing context, I found it enjoyable and recommend it to others. ( )

Guy Gavriel Kay has taken the best and most beloved elements of the genre and woven them seamlessly into a beautiful masterpiece. All of us who enjoy reading at one time or another wish we could be a part of the stories read; Kay makes the impossible seem possible! ( )
