NEL 007642. SF/fantasy novel, first in the Viricionium sequence. ''First NEL paperback edition 1971'' on copyright page. Bruce Pennington cover art. A very uncommon British edition.

''As the first volume of his Viriconium sequence - though it is much simpler than later instalments - Harrison's second novel, THE PASTEL CITY (1971), is of greater interest. It is a Far-Future science fantasy set on a bleak Dying Earth, whose description plays on Sword-and-Sorcery imagery, though nothing happens of a magical nature. Viriconium itself is both the land - conveyed with a growing capacity to portray in words the physical world - and the City at the end of time which dominates it'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
