Sorcerers of Majipoor/Silverberg, Ro/Hardb/0333644867/S048-B1
A thousand years before Lord Valentine, the Majipoor Cycle unfolds another magnificent epic in a world conceived on a titanic scale.
One of the best-loved science-fantasy sagas of all time is resumed in this unforgettable tale of treachery and passion, war and destiny.
On the gigantic planet Majipoor, it is a time of ancient mysteries and new wonders. The aged Pontifex Prankipin, who brought sorcery - and prosperity - to the Fifty cities of Castle Mount, is at last near death. Omens are seen, prodigies are born... Even the sea dragons have been glimpsed from the cliffs. Surely some great change is at hand! The Coronal Lord Confalume, who will now become Pontifex, decides to begin the Funeral Games before his own replacement is chosen. And it is no secret that the next Coronal will be Prince Prestimion of Muldemar. By law and custom, the blood son of the present Coronal cannot rule. Besides, everyone knows that young Korsibar much prefers the pleasures of the hunt to the intrigues of the court.
What they cannot know is that the hunter has a new and secret quarry - the Starburst Crown. For Korsibar has been visited by an oracle. From the thin lips of the two-headed Su-Suheris, he has heard whispered words that will plunge the planet into a fearsome conflagration, engulfing all the myriad races of Majipoor in a war to alter destiny itself.
Set on the most magnificent and splendorous world in all SF, Robert Silverberg's bestselling Majipoor Cycle has long been considered one of the jewels in speculative fiction's crown. Coming after a ten-year interval, this prequel enriches and illuminates the tapestry of the whole.
