1 Fergusson, BruceThe Mace Of Souls: A Novel Of The Six Kingdoms. 23413
William Morrow: NY. 1989.
First edition.
Hardcover.
The author's second novel, a high-fantasy tale of the Six Kingdoms, preceded by THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS (1987).

''his fantasy work consists of two titles in his Six Kingdoms sequence, which seems open-ended. The general venue is a medieval Fantasy Land, somewhat grimmer than the norm; but most unusually the main setting within this venue is urban and extremely bleak. The first tale, The Shadow Of His Wings (1987), features a Hidden Monarch who is inclined not to accept the throne and a quest which he can succeed in terminating only at heavy cost to others. The protagonist of THE MACE OF SOULS (1989) is a criminal whose initial reasons for becoming involved in his quest are to acquire sufficient funds to get to a nicer climate; the general tenor of the story is mean-street and weary. Both novels, after much duelling with Shadows and episodes of personal growth, end positively; but it is clear that the author was not entirely comfortable with the conventions of Heroic Fantasy. It is hoped his silence will end'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).


Fine copy in a fine dustjacket (as new).
