The tales for which he is best known -- those involving the world of Pegana -- felt slow and repetitive. These tales describe the creation of Pegana, from a simple game by Fate and Chaos to a pantheon of gods and the humans created to worship them. They read like lists rather than stories, with names of places (or people? or gods?) being cast about that I found it difficult to follow what was happening to whom.
With that being said, I found most of the stories entertaining and worth reading, and recommend this collection to get a taste of early fantasy writing.
