Lucius Shepard 1

Lucius Shepard responded to the places of the world with imaginative avarice and a hallucinated intensity of portrayal, created deeply alienated protagonists whose displacement from the venues in which they live generates constant ironies and regrets, tending to subordinate mundane resolutions of plot to moments of terminal, deathly Transcendence because human Arts can reach fruition solely through a Transcendence that, like the dragon’s itself, may be indistinguishable from death.” – John Clute
