A tip of the cap to Michael Shea

To my view, Michael Shea was a greatly under-appreciated author. Sadly, he died recently, before the rest of you lot woke up to his talents. He wrote across a number of genres. The works I really enjoyed were fantasy/horror works that are thematically and stylistically similar to the work of Jack Vance and early Tanith Lee. Thanks to Michael for Nifft and the vividly imagined and described worlds he adventured in.
