    Tanith Lee’s Cold Grey Stones is a collection of 11 dark fantasy stories – some long some short but all are utterly brilliant They range from enchanting and opulent to melancholy menacing and chilling but they stay with you long after you close the bookTanith Lee is the ueen of weird and I’m completely in awe of her She writes like I’ve never seen elsewhere A few parts I want to share here because I can’t use notes in Scribd as I can in Kindle This is a horrible room anyway – all I can afford after I lost seuentially my job my home my wife The ceiling sags and sometimes bits of it sprinkle the worn disgusting carpet like sugar The bed is both too hard and too soft in separate pockets I get backache already and I’ve only been here six months And I’m only forty two for God’s sake The walls are – what is it – whitewashed I suppose Down the hall the shared bathroom is somewhere generally to avoid After all serving seven to ten people as it does it’s a public toilet and like several of those occasionally full of unsavoury things such as spent needles Enough of this description Yet beyond the town lay the fields that in summer turned yellow and in the winter black then white Out there too lay the stretches of the river that were not choked with muck but flowed in summer like ale with strawberry fish in it that in winter froze themselves to pewter Beyond the great forest began ash and birch and pine and this ran all the way to the distant mountains far as outer space And the summer woods were green and the mountains lavender but in winter both were white and the home of the Ice Maiden Her eyes Her eyes define and defy everything ever said of them You believe they may be dark until she looks at you Then they are blue as lapis just as all the legends tell lapis lazuli behind sparkled casements of frost And they are terrible For they have no wickedness in them and know no malignity and no wish to deliver pain But they know nothing of need nothing of empathy nothing of the merest momentary kindness nothing like that And they never will He could hear now the susurrus of words not their content Above Harco’s head invisible the ears of the hare lifted up Their uivering filaments snared every sound which Harco might interpret Over and over she said it “Kill me then – kill me then – I curse you you bloody stinking God – kill me then – punish us – no murderer must live – so kill me then – strike me down here in your celebrated house kill kill kill me” From one thin window red drops spilled on her off a pane of crimson glass That was all the wound she received She is at the edge of the field sat there crying She wears rags and too big bulgy broken boots stuffed with mildewy bits of ruined stuff The hare sits himself also and stares at her She does not even throw a look at him Her tears her tragedy have become her world Long strong filthy brown hair down her back How white her skin even though her hands are raw and her visible neck and ankles bitten by fleas Her eyes though reddened the shade of the grey silver tears themselves She is thirteen years of age Then a ghastly drunken man comes slobber slouching into the field He is unshaven and wears a crooked hat and a dirty coat too small for his bony body He leans down with a sort of laugh and wrenches the girl to her feet “Shut your mither moorthing Dori It was only a slap Come and keep me warm” And when he slews off back along the slope beyond the field she follows Strangely – or is it strange? – the drunkard has not seen the hare bolt upright glaring with gas lamp green eyes But she as she turns out of the field glances after all backward Tearless now her face hard as an iron nail I have bookmarked Tanith Lee for this year I am hooked now and I highly recommendThemes a clock that will turn you to stone there is something in the water a haunting tombstone the ice maiden shape shifters ghosts a stone heart a vampire forest 5 stars

    A masterpiece of writingI was enchanted and enthralled by this book or rather collection of eleven superbly written stories Cold Grey Stones is a masterpiece as you would expect given Tanith Lee's reputation as a writer In every story Tanith Lee transports the reader into the mesmeric world of her own rich devising The imagery is powerful the descriptions are spellbinding and at all times the writing is brilliantSome of the stories are long some uite short The stories range from enchanting and opulent to melancholy menacing and chilling but at all times are memorable and moving My favourite story in this collection is Clockatrice a work of sheer genius electrifying and compellingI grew up as a fan of the science fiction series Blakes' 7 and Tanith Lee was the scriptwriter for two episodes Sarcophagus and Sand Tanith Lee was the first woman to win the British Fantasy August Derleth Award for best novel She has won awards too numerous to list As a writer I am in awe of her command of her craftI simply cannot say how much I love this collection without resorting to gushing or to the use of even adjectives Needless to say I highly recommend it Brilliant fantasy writing across several genres of fantasy

    Tanith Lee's latest collection published by NewCon Press is part of their new Imaginings line This line will consist of short story collections by selected authors and contain previously published but uncollected stories and some original stories picked by the authors themselves You can find information on this venture on the NewCon Press websiteWhen I was offered a chance to review this collection I jumped at the chance Tanith Lee is an author I've heard so much about but never got around to reading at least that's what I thought when accepting this collection for review It turns out however I've read two anthologies containing her work The Dragon uintet which contained her novelette Love In A Time Of Dragons and Winter Moon which has her novella The Heart Of The Moon Both of these were purchased because they also contained stories by Mercedes Lackey and as such I hadn't remembered that Lee was also part of them However after looking them up I do recall enjoying them a lot and marking down Lee's name to find work by her This brings us back to the present and Cold Grey Stones which provided me with of her work and I didn't even have to go out and hunt for it Cold Grey Stones contains eleven stories that range from uite long almost novella length to just short vignettes In subject they range from horror to fantasy While I liked all of them I did have some favourites but what bound all of them together was the wonderful uality of the writing For some of the modern stories the style was crisp and contemporary but many of the stories included in this collection have an almost fairytale like uality to them which I really enjoyed Lee's use of language ranges from the sharp and angular Killing Her to the poetic The Heart of Ice but they all convey a mastery of language and a facility with words which makes reading these stories such a lovely experienceMy favourite stories were Clockatrice The Greyve En Forêt Noire and My Heart A Stone These all contain a riddle and possess something haunted in some cases literally in the others metaphysically Clockatrice the first story in the collection and one of the longest tells the story of the 16th century Diana who was petrified by a cockatrice and that of modern day Dru who becomes fascinated by her story and that of her lover who had a clock created in her memory which was ornamented with both her image and that of the cockatrices I loved the Gothic feel to this one and the visuals it created in my head of the clockatrice being Another story set in the modern day the combination of its depiction of the horror that today's economy is for people badly affected by it and the protagonist's somewhat lackadaisical acceptance of the appearance of what seems to be an animated headstone lends The Greyve a rather absurdist tone but one that is laced with hope even if the ending is somewhat less than happy En Forêt Noire is a blend of horror mystery and classical ghost story set in what seems to be 18th century France I loved the sensibilities in this one and the ending really surprised me My Heart A Stone is a true ghost story one with a moral about human nature I loved the narrator and his fey like nature that allowed him to shift into a hare at night He's also rather unreliable as it isn't clear what is true and what is fancy until the very end I liked this aspect a lot and again it made for a surprising ending I loved the stark visuals Lee created of opulence gone to seed of beauty corrupted by the bitter conseuences of indulgenceThe combination of the stories collected in Cold Grey Stones not only gives a good overview of Tanith Lee's broad range but it's also a wonderful jumping off point to explore her work further The book opens with a lovely introduction by Ian Whates who recounts his first encounter of Lee's work on the form of the first two volumes of The Secret Books of Paradys He waxes uite lyrical about them and as luck would have it my husband brought an omnibus edition of these books home last year so I'll be able to follow in Whates' footsteps and explore of Tanith Lee's work If you haven't encountered her writing before but like me have heard a lot of good things about it Cold Grey Stones is an excellent introduction If you're a long time fan it will provide you with some lovely new work or previously printed work you may not have encountered before In either case Cold Grey Stones comes highly recommended and is well worth your reading time Cold Grey Stones is available in the UK as a signed limited hardback edition and in both Kindle and ePub formats everywhereThis book was provided for review by the publisher

    This collection's title says a lot about its contents These eleven stories tend to the dark side of fantasy and many deal with death and what lies after The collection begins with a story about a cockatrice and a girl turned to stone and also a cockatrice clock that menaces a digital artist There are stories of a stone heart and a spirit hare and a tombstone that haunts the apartment of a man down on his luck There is a vampire forest and an inn that hosts the ghosts of its victims All of these have the wonderful characters that spring from the words of Tainth Lee into the imagination of the reader Sadly she won't be writing any wonderful tales for us so we have to make the most of the legacy she leftThis collection is Volume # 1 of the Imaginings Series which proposes to bring together previously uncollected work by a specific author along with new purpose written stories It should be noted that there is a different version of this book called Colder Greyer Stones which is identified as Volume # 2 of the Imaginings Series This is not a second volume of work but an expansion of the original that contains one additional original novella by Ms Lee that was inspired by the cover art The potential buyer should be aware that this is the only difference in the two collections

    I can't get over Tanith Lee's writing process sometimes You know when she talks about how she starts writing something like 'Oh the title came to me or my husband when we saw this clock shaped like a bird Clockatrice and the story just came after that' And it's like the woman builds a story around a title or an atmosphere and I think that's crazy And amazingClassic Tanith Lee collection of stories some are brilliant 'Killing Her' is probably my favourite Ms Lee doesn't usually write contemporary stuff so it's a nice surprise some are pretty wtf 'The Greyve' if anyone else wrote this I'd give up But this is Tanith Lee and if she wants to write about a gravestone haunting a man then you better believe it's happening and some are unbelievably gothic 'My Heart A Stone' is another favourite I love the atmosphere I mean enter rag and bones guy in an empty house where a group of people stand before the open coffin of a man with a stone heart This is the stuff that made me start reading Tanith Lee in the first place
