'At a time when fantasy relies heavily
on the formulaic and superficial, John
Grant's writing comes as an
exhilarating antidote to the
conventional trappings of the genre.
This is typified by his two major
fantasy novels, Albion and The World.
. . . The very stability of the fantasy
genre, reliable, predictable, formulaic,
is undermined by Grant's quantum
approach to fantasy. The status quo
must continually be challenged, and
this Grant has done very successfully
with these remarkable novels.'
