Quite simply the best writer of contemporary fiction alive today, Crowley has dazzled me since reading his novel "Little, Big" over 20 years ago. Nothing I have ever read affected me as deeply and as thoroughly and made me want to aspire to the craft of writing in quite the same way as this one work. This man can work utter magic with words--there is no other writer alive who is as competent, as poignant and as technically proficient. The "Aegypt" series is a masterwork, worthy of the ages it recreates. Utter genius.
