I first encountered McKillip's work when I found Heir of Sea and Water, the second volume of the Riddlemaster of Hed trilogy in a drug store while attending an archaeological field school in Elk Point, Alberta. The Riddlemaster series now ranks right up there with Tolken's Hobbit/LOTR books for me, and McKillip the only fantasy writer whose works I always bought as soon as they came out.
My post on her novel Fool's Run appears here:
I remember her fantasy fondly. I just reviewed Moon-Flash in her honor. I doubt it's her best work but it's one of only a few SF ones so I gave it a go.ReplyDelete
