(from Bantam 1983)

Come to Majipoor, the magnificent, exotic planet of Lord Valentine's Castle. Come to Hissune, favorite of Lord Valentine, as he probes the deepest secrets of Majipoor's long past in the depths of the great Labyrinth. Join him as he becomes one with its many peoples— dukes and generals, thieves and murderers, Ghayrogs and Metamorphs— and discovers wonder, terror, longing and love, and learns wisdom that will shape his destiny.


The second book in the series begun with Lord Valentine's Castle. This is a collection of stories set on Majipoor connected by short interludes with Hissune. As the copyright page says: Portions of this book have appeared in somewhat different form in Omni, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. It adds some interesting details to the history and geography of the big planet, but does not really further the story of Valentine.
