Sheri S Tepper's works are always engrossing, detailed, and very readable. It's a complicated story, but all the really good parts are there, sometimes in triplicate! Whether you take is slow and read each book in intense detail, or devour them back-to-back, they're always worth re-reading. In the sub-genre of fantasy books in which the protagonist enters an alternate reality as a player in a boardgame, this is the most elaborate, fantastical, and richly-described that I have come across.

Tepper, Sheri S. ‘Marianne is gone, heaven knows what is happening to her, and here we sit, dillying. I am not dillying,’ said Makr Avehl in as patient a voice as he could manage. A most horribly noxious but subtle villain. His name, for lack of a better and because it has become ubiquitous, is Cattermune. I think it is no coincidence that this chain of game stores springs up and at the same time people begin to disappear

The book, while very short, is one of Tepper's best. Atypically, it even features a strong male character. All three of the Marianne novels are quite good, though somewhat hard to find these days.

My original books were lost somewhere in multiple moves, so I was VERY pleased to find the omnibus version. Sheri S Tepper's works are always engrossing, detailed, and very readable.

I'm not sure if I agree with another reviewers use of the word "believable", unless the reviewer means unbelievable--being fantasy and all that--but easy enough to suspend disbelief, or perhaps that the characters are believable and realistic. All true, but this is also one of the most imaginative and entertaining fantasy works that I've ever read, and as a fantasy fan I've read a lot.

This was also written early in Tepper's career, before she decided to start force feeding politics into her prose, and I say that even though I generally agree with her politics. Don't let that dissuade you from her later work, which is generally very good (and Grass is one of the best science fiction novels ever written).

But please publishers: Put this back in print, or at least let Amazon or other eBook vendors create eBook versions. I paid $70 some years back for used third volume of the trilogy (and that was the lowest price at the time!), and none of that money went to Ms. Tepper or her publisher.

Nuadora
These books , though hard to find, are truly excellent. The main character is an incest survivor who escapes from an abusive family and goes on to adventures and fighting evil. Ms. Tepper is able to use fantastic places and beings to bring us to a better understanding of everyday evils and heroes in our real world.

It is a fairy tale and a fantasy and a study of people. It is dreamy and funny and courageous. The dream worlds are amazing - I love the grass dog - and the story is fantastic, but absolutely believable. I haven't read anything else quite like it.
