    One thought on “Contrarywise”

    1. This was a 20 years later re read of a fantasy I remember liking in high school, one of Terri Windling s Ace Fantasy Specials.It opens with a somewhat deadly prologue involving Gods, in which the Trickster Rimble playfully meddles with humanity, creating the novel s most interesting concept, landdraw, in which children are born with characteristics metaphorically resembling the land in which they were conceived Piedmerris, born in a peaceful, fertile area, are plump and placid, and have a psychi [...]

    5. Well, sort of I m a sucker for Trickster tales, and I picked this up on that account I didn t get very far into it The beginning was crude and vulgar, with no humor at all Maybe it gets better further in But I m not likely to find out Is it too much to ask that a Trickster tale be funny
