Published by Grafton of HarperCollins Publishers London in 1993. This stiff card cover 348 page copy is in top order-text clean and bright.
About this title- Poilar Crookleg's dream becomes reality when he is designated leader of a group of 40 young men and women chosen by the village of Jespodar to participate in the yearly pilgrimage to the top of the mammouth mountain known as "The Wall," a journey from which no sane person has heretofore returned. Veteran sf author Silverberg is a consummate raconteur with a flair for metaphor. Like the ocean in his Face of the Waters ( LJ 9/15/91), the mountain in his latest work represents both a physical and a spiritual obstacle for the human spirit. Fans of epic adventure will not be disappointed.
Where Silverberg goes today, the rest of science fiction will follow tomorrow. -Isaac Asimov "Silverberg seems capable of amazements beyond those of mere mortals." -Washington Post Book World
Review--This is a tale of tragedy and enlightenment, for the trials of the Pilgrims are as much personal as physical. Sometimes appalling, other times (though rare) amusing, there is a pang of sadness and satisfaction for the characters as they come to realize their fate. I've re-read this work many, many times and I always find some small nuance that I had missed before -my own little re-illumination, perhaps. For those who love fantasy and scifi, and those who enjoy twists in the tale, this is a must read.
