Lucius Shepard ~ Kalimantan

just finished reading Lucius Shepard‘s 1993 novella, Kalimantan, set in the eponymous Borneo jungle, a tale of deception, perception, illusion become power; with the most viscerally-wrought alternate reality prose portrayal with an equally hallucinatory and utterly compelling battle scene, probably the best of their kind, by anyone; coupled with shorter fables of lush jungle mystery, Solitario’s Eyes and The Arcevoalo, a story that could be the prow of the Fantasy realm, instead of merely being relegated to it. They’re all pikers compared to Lucius.
