Later This Month
I am to receive volumes containing works by Poul Anderson that I have not yet read;
Multiverse, the long-awaited memorial anthology, will be published.
Meanwhile, I am rereading Mike Carey's eleven Lucifer graphic novels (see previous post). In Poul Anderson's fantasy novels, supernatural beings like Odin and Satan are real in some parallel universes but mythological in others. This common premise underlies several interconnected graphic fantasies by Alan Moore, Jamie Delano, Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey etc.
I will post about the previously unread Anderson stories when I have received them but will not have immediate access to Multiverse. I am sure that it will be appropriate not only to review the book as a whole but also to discuss individual stories and articles. One reader of this blog has over time emailed several articles about Anderson's works that have been published on the blog. I welcome any such reviews or discussions of the contents of Multiverse.
