Maunderings of the diseased mind

13 May
Gregory Frost's latest book is LORD TOPHET, volume II of the SHADOWBRIDGE duology from Del Rey (Random House). Like its predecessor, the book has been praised to the skies. Publishers Weekly (a starred review):"Frost brings the charm of an ancient storyteller and the wit of a contemporary tale-spinner to this dramatic tale, effortlessly manipulating his troupe of mortals and immortals and bringing the truths and myths of Shadowbridge equally to life."

Paul Witcover, SciFi Weekly: "His pages bristle with the kind of lively energy I associate with Miyazaki films, and his delight in the stories his characters hear and transform and retell is palpable and contagious."

Fantasy Book Critic: "...not only is Lord Tophet...a richly rewarding experience, it is also one of the few must-read fantasies of the year."

Book One, Shadowbridge debuted in January. In their review, Publishers Weekly praised it as "a sparkling gem of mythic invention and wonder," and Gary K. Wolfe in Locus Magazine added: "Surpassingly lovely prose...Frost could be on his way toward a masterpiece." Volume II will be out in June. His short story collection, ATTACK OF THE JAZZ GIANTS & OTHER STORIES (Golden Gryphon Press) was hailed by Locus as "a notable collection, likely to stand as one of the best of 2005" and by Publishers Weekly once again in a starred review: "Frost demonstrates his mastery of the short story form in what will surely rank as one of the best fantasy collections of the year." Other recent works include the novel FITCHER'S BRIDES, (Tor Books), an International Horror Guild Award and World Fantasy Award Finalist; "Ill-Met in Ilium" in The Secret History of Vampires; and "The Fortunate Dream" in the YA anthology Magic in the Mirrorstone.
