Conhecimento Comum



I love this series of books because they are short reading. Each part has a different author and style and it a consistent world. There are plenty of mysteries to keep one engaged and This book in particular gave some clues as to the contagion (not a spoiler) If liked X-files before it became the "great conspiracy" you will love these books.

This is a multi-layered book. At first glance, this is a fascinating story told from the point of view of a young boy about a family who opens a tourist attraction in Florida in the 1950s. There is interesting commentary on race relations and other political aspects of the deep South of that time. If you are a student of folklore, fable and myth, however, the book becomes more. Gods and holy figures of various traditions make cameo (and not so cameo) appearances throughout, some more obvious than others. It turns out in the end that Dogland is more than just a tourist trap, but a battlefield between good and evil.… (mais)

I want to re-read Dogland and then try this again. I used to think that writing from the "you" persona would be interesting, but I found it intrusive and a little annoying. Shetterly is great at setting, and that's true here, too, but I wasn't expecting religion, and it did not appeal to me in the way his other books have.

This shared world anthology reminded me of two of my favorites, Thieves World and Merovingen Nights. I'd read those in the late 80s early 90s and loved them. This book shares many of the strong points of those books. My favorite story from this book was "Badu's Luck" by Emma Bull followed closely by "The Green Rabbit from S'Rian" by Gene Wolfe and finally 3rd best IMO was "An Act of Contrition" by Steven Brust.
