A fairly good light fantasy novel -- might even call it proto-steampunk. Lin Carter (paraphrasing here) said it was the best James Branch Cabell imitation he knew. I see what he means -- I suspect Du Bois was familiar with at least Cream of the Jest and Something About Eve -- but it mostly lacks Cabell's rarefied style and pessimistic wit. In some ways it's more like a Thorne Smith novel. Enjoyable, unjustly neglected. ( )
