HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS. 1986. Paperback. Very Good. Silverhorn is the sequel to Magician, which, like a venerable patriarch, st ands at the head of a great tribe of fantasy writing. When Raymond Feist's enormous novel was published, critics called it "the best new fantasy conce pt in years", and Feist has refined and explored that concept over a dozen novels. His "concept" was to bring together two (and later, more) whole, in tricately realised Fantasy worlds. Midkemia is a Tolkienian realm, a Europe an-Medieval series of kingdoms in which magic is prominent, and where men s hare the earth with dwarves and elves. Feist's genius was inventing another sword and sorcercy realm based more closely on eastern models, the Empire of Tsuranuanni, as vast as Ancient China, as formalised and devoted to the arts of war as a samurai Japan. A magical rift in time-space brings these t wo worlds clashing together, and the young boy Pug and his soldier friend T omas are thrown into the ensuing maelstrom of invasion and epic battle, bef ore embarking on a more fundamental magical journey towards the very roots of evil itself. Feist's two sequels to Magician, Silverthorn and A Darkness at Sethanon complete the richly conceived "Riftwar Saga", and Fiest has g one on to chronicle other aspects of his invented worlds. With Janny Wurts he wrote the "Empire" trilogy, which charts the rise, through the rigid pat riarchy of the Empire of Tsuranuanni, of a remarkable female heroine, a wom an who eventually reaches the heights of the imperial throne itself Daughte r of the Empire, Servant of the Empire and Mistress of Empire. More recentl y he has returned to the world of Medkemia, and to his hero Pug, with the S, HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS, 1986, Random House Trade Paperback. 2006. Paperback. Very Good. A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. An Italian village on a hilltop near the Adriatic coast, a decaying palazzo facing the sea, and in the basement, cobwebbed and dusty, lit by a single bulb, an archive unknown to scholars. Here, a young graduate student from R ome, Francesca Cappelletti, makes a discovery that inspires a search for a work of art of incalculable value, a painting lost for almost two centuries . The artist was Caravaggio, a master of the Italian Baroque. He was a genius , a revolutionary painter, and a man beset by personal demons. Four hundred years ago, he drank and brawled in the taverns and streets of Rome, moving from one rooming house to another, constantly in and out of jail, all the while painting works of transcendent emotional and visual power. He rose fr om obscurity to fame and wealth, but success didn't alter his violent tempe rament. His rage finally led him to commit murder, forcing him to flee Rome a hunted man. He died young, alone, and under strange circumstances. Caravaggio scholars estimate that between sixty and eighty of his works are in existence today. Many others-no one knows the precise number-have been lost to time. Somewhere, surely, a masterpiece lies forgotten in a storeroo m, or in a small parish church, or hanging above a fireplace, mistaken for a mere copy. Prizewinning author Jonathan Harr embarks on an spellbinding journey to discover the long-lost painting known as The Taking of Christ-its mysterious fate and the circumstances of its disappearance have captivated Car, Random House Trade Paperback, 2006, Vintage. 1990. Paperback. Good. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a lengthy motorcycle trip through America.
