Dieser 560 Seiten Schinken sammelt alle Geschichten M John Harrisons die ansatzweise mit seiner Erfindung Viriconium zu tun haben der Ultimativen Stadt Die Anthologie ist erstaunlich unausgewogen W hrend die drei Novellen Romane ihren guten Ruf verdient haben sind die Kurzgeschichten samt und sonders wirr ziellos und einfach nicht unterhaltsam Einzig als zumindest gut geschriebene Stimmungsst cke mag man sie genie en k nnen wenn schon nicht ihrer jeweiligen Handlung wegenDer Reihentitel Fantasy Masterworks ist hier etwas verfehlt Meisterwerke sind wie bereits erw hnt h chstens die drei l ngeren Geschichten The Pastel City A Storm of Wings In Viriconium und selbst die bestechen mehr durch ihre farbige und vokabelreiche Sprache als inhaltlich Nachdem die Welt von Viriconium eine weitergedachte Erde und keines der magischen Elemente allzu unwirklich ist w rde ich die Geschichten au erdem eher in die SF Sparte einordnen

First I should say that this book actually three novels and a number of short stories is an excellent read Secondly it isn t exactly what you might expect from the blurb the text about the murderous nightly games in Viriconium That comes from the start of the first story in the volume Viriconium K nights It suggests that these are stories of of no holds barred rivalry between picturesue factions of killers you know intrigue fights twists of fate betrayal all seething beneath the surface of the cityActually it s not like that it s much betterAt the surface level the world of Viriconium is apparently our world tens of thousands of years in the future Industrial civilization has risen and fallen leaving its name which nobody can read in the stars and a poisoned and depleted world where people survive as best they can scavenging from the past and nursing bits of decaying technology The geography is vague no hand drawn maps and all identifiable landmarks have gone apart from the names of some real places and features Dunham Massey Rannoch Moor Lymm and especially Viriconium street names it s fun spotting the literary or geographical allusionsThe first two novels Pastel City and Storm of Wings explore the conseuences of this and develop the idea in a number of ways some subtle some gross While haunting in their atmosphere and very inventive they are fairly conventional Perhaps significantly much of the action takes place far from ViriconiumThe short stories apparently fit between the novels and take a personal close up look at the lives of characters in this extraordinary world They are much stranger and focussed mainly on Viriconium as is the last novel In Viriconium Don t try to work out exactly what order these stories go in because it s just not like that The same characters appear in what can only I think be accounted for as alternate versions of the same worlds Characters who are heroes in one story show up as decidedly shabby in another Even the names shift so Uroconium rather than ViriconiumAnd what s going on with the repeated scenes Events in one book are echoed in a different context elsewhere For example the encounter with St Elmo Buffin and his experimental telescope in Storm of Wings and a similar scene with Emmet Buffo in In Viriconium similar down to the unsatisfactory snack of fish given to the visitors Or the descriptions of the Mosaic Lane baths in Lord Cromis and the Lamia and in A Young man s Journey Then there is the repeated theme of folk ritual often involving dancers dressed as animals or with animal headsI m not sure exactly what is happening here but for me the way the various stories intersect reinforce and contradict one another recalls a mythology or a body of folk tales rather than a single narrative It s as if the whole thing has grown up rather than being written or the stories have been reconstructed from earlier versions from underlying textsAt the end a link emerges between Viriconium and our own time Its nature is enigmatic though and as with much else we are left to wonder exactly what it meansAs other reviewers have pointed out this is a bleak world a chilly place an Earth almost wound down But it is far from depressing The short stories in particular portray a world of intense cultural creativity they mostly revolve around dancers musicians poets and artists And the description of the city is captivating and real convincing not so much because of what is said but because of what isn t You would only leave out so much or allow so much contradiction if you were describing a real place wouldn t you It must be true or it would look perfectReally really worth a go
