I bought this at Eastercon, from the dealers' room. I read Doorways in the Sand a long time ago and enjoyed it, and wanted to see if it was still good after about three decades. It was still good, though the style was possibly a little dated even when it was published. But there's no point in picking a fight with a book that's thirty years old.

But the cover, what a gorgeous thing it is! Nothing to do with the story, as far as I can tell. In fact, I'm not sure it's not a reject for Lord of Light, with all those Buddhist/Hindu motifs. Yum!

Your result for With which under appreciated artist (or otherwise) is your personality most paralleled?...

Hieronymus Bosch

18 Amy_Brown, 14 Christy_Grandjean, 65 El_Greco, 59 Frank_Frazetta, 77 Hieronymus_Bosch and 65% Stephen_Gammel!

Hieronymus Bosch, (Jeroen van Aken) (1450 – August 9, 1516) was an Early Netherlandish painter of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Many of his works depict sin and human moral failings. Bosch used images of demons, half-human animals and machines to evoke fear and confusion to portray the evil of man. The works contain complex, highly original, imaginative, and dense use of symbolic figures and iconography, some of which was obscure even in his own time. He is said to have been an inspiration for the surrealist movement in the twentieth century.
