My first taste of Silverberg as a fantasy author, after having loved his sf work for many years. It's pretty good. Valentine is unusual for a fantasy hero, as instead of fighting his way through problems, he talks his way through them. Silverberg gives us a bunch of very likeable characters in this book, and a very interesting world for them to live in. I will be reading the sequels in due course, although it is nice to get an entire story in one volume - another oddity on the fantasy bookshelves!
