I Truly Enjoyed This!

I love the work of Mervyn Peake! Gormenghast has always been my home away from home in the imaginary sense, It and the Castle of Lord Juss in Eddison's The Worm Ouroboros. The stories and poems contained herein as the smallest sample...the merest soupcon of this genius' wide ranging work and the readings are by his sons. You can't get closer to having the Master tell you his tales and sing you his songs than THAT!!!
