''his prime work of fantasy is the Michael Perrin or Songs of Earth and Power diptych, comprising The Infinity Concerto (1984) and The Serpent Mage (1986) n). The story involves portal crossings between Earth and a beautiful but harsh secondary world, the ''Realm'', whose stylized Fantasyland qualities are deliberate: it is the imperfect creation of a self-elevated god, a place of exile for the haughty Sidhe, stray humans, and half-breeds (''Breeds''), following millennia-past wars. Children born there lack souls and become abominations; there are no dreams; unpleasant metamorphoses abound'' (David Langford/Enctyclopedia of Fantasy).
