Marketed as the sequel to Myers' great underground classic, `Silverlock', `The Moon's Fire-Eating Daughter' is no such beast, although it does bear a family resemblance to that former work, as a particularly fierce house cat might to a tiger. Both books are romps through the entirety of literary history, but it is there that the similarities end. Whereas `Silverlock' was a feast of literary creations, `The Moon's Daughter' introduces us to the creators, or makers, as Myers would have it. But the...more

Silverlock was better. That should really be a surprise to anyone, as Silverlock is so much better known.

Great tribute to literature.
Way too academic.
Every page is like deciphering a literature teacher's cryptex.
However, it's got some great poetry interspersed.

My recommendation: Read Silverlock and forget this nonsense.
