The national bestselling saga of Robert Silverberg’s stunning imagination that began with Lord Valentine’s Castle continues in Majipoor Chronicles.

The young street urchin Hissune helps Lord Valentine regain his throne, and as a reward, he is sent into the depths of the Labyrinth, a massive library of memory cubes in which the entire history of Majipoor is preserved. As Hissune prepares for a summons to return to Castle Mount, he relives the lives of Majipoor’s most famous and notorious inhabitants, learning more about the people and his new land than anyone else in the kingdom. As he becomes one with its many peoples—dukes and generals, thieves and murderers, Ghayrogs and Metamorphs—he discovers wonder, terror, longing, and love and learns wisdom that will shape his destiny.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik Graff | 2/17/2013

    " This collection of short stories is set in the same world as Lord Valentine's Castle, which had appeared previously. I didn't much like either book, but this one had the advantage of being a collection of individual pieces, not a single narrative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 1/16/2013

    " I've liked a lot of Silverberg's work. I thought this was very lovely in the writing and told a pretty good story. My 4 stars is probalby really 3 and 1/2. I actually read this before reading the first in the series, "Lord Valentine's Castle," so maybe I would have enjoyed it more had I done so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AndrewP | 12/17/2012

    " A collection of short stories all based in the world of Majipoor in various times and locations. Not a bad read but more applicable as background information to the main volumes in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Gager | 9/25/2012

    " It's not usual for me to give a sci-fi book a 4-star rating but this is a good one for sure. By one of the all-time masters of the genre of course. My only question: Why no flying machines? Also, the final twist at the end was very predictable. "

    " one of my early science fiction book club books, read many times, but this time, listened on audio. strangest thing was the readers were the same group that does the Ender books, so kept expecting battle school or something to make an appearance :). "
