the only pleasure capable of outstripping reading Lucius Shepard is re-reading Lucius Shepard. beyond that, there is only this singular gift of re-reading a masterwork of Lucius’ in a form spectacularly reworked by him. VIATOR, a novel centered on a freighter violently beached on a beach near a destitute port near Nome, AL, and its crew/caretakers’ each and several obsessions with the ship.
one of my fave of Shepard’s books to begin with, he’s made VIATOR (once published in an expended manner as VIATOR REDUX, now originally titled and lovingly printed by Stona Fitch‘s ConcordEPress) an absolute masterpiece of hallucination.
