6 EMPRESS OF THE ENDLESS DREAM [THE]
Arden, Tom
Gollancz, 2001, 0575063742 / 9780575063747

First Edition, Hardcover, Very Fine, Very Fine. Book. Jenkins, Kevin
Hardcover UK, first printing and true first edition. (No US publication for any book in this excellent fantasy series.) Very fine (unread) copy in very fine jacket. Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy. The Fifth Book of The Orokon series. The final volume in Arden's five-volume apocalyptic fantasy epic comprising macabre humor, horror, dark fantasy and mysticism all set in a world equivalent to our 17th century Europe, where the world-saving youth begins the quest as a remarkably unlikable and immature young man, a refreshing break from the one dimensional, wholesome hero-types we usually get in quest fantasy novels. Arden is relatively unknown in the U.S. and deserves more recognition. Innovative adult fantasy at its very best. Beautiful dust jacket illustration by Kevin Jenkins.
