The Sea... Restlessm Eerie. All-powerful. And mysterious - Occasionally she reveals her secrets.
Legenda Maris comprises eleven tales of the ocean and her denizens, including two that are orginal to this collection - "Leviathan" and "Land's End, The Edge Of The Sea" - which were among the last stories Tanith Lee wrote. In this treasure chest of tale, the author works her beguiling, linguistic sorcery, to conjure mermaids who are as deadly as they are lovely, the hidden coves of lonely fishing villages harbouring mysteries, and fantastical ships that haunt the waves. She explores the relaitionship between the sea and the land, and the occasional meetings between those who dwell above and below the waters - meeting that are sometimes wondrous and sometimes fatal, often both.(back cover copy)

Louisa The Poisoner

Novelette. 22,000 words.

'There are three things that grow in March Mire,' said the aunt, in a silly sing-song voice, her eyes half closed, 'and that grow nowhere else together, and seldom anywhere. Find them in one spot, take them and make them up. From them comes this dew. Oh Louisa. Listen carefully. This stuff grants the gift of death.'
Louisa widened her eyes but she was not actually impressed. Death was everywhere in the mire and especially often in her aunt's nasty bottles.
'Listen,' said the aunt again, 'the poison in this bottle leaves no trace as it kills. In the world beyond the mire this can mean much. I've told you, there are towns along the moors, and great houses piled up with money and jewels. If every cobweb on that ceiling was changed to bank notes it would be nothing to them ... We'll seek for just such a rich place. Then I'll know how to go on. You shall pretend to be a lost lady, as I've trained you. You'll do as I say, and our fortunes will be made.'
'But how, Aunt?'
'They'll fall in love, and make over their goods through wills, which I've told you of. And then I'll see them off ...'
Thus begins Louisa's strange journey into the world beyond the mire, armed only with her striking beauty, her perfect manners, and her aunt's deadly poison. A thrilling historical fantasy! (dustwrapper copy)

Lycanthia, Or, The Children Of Wolves

Novel. 80,000 words.
Nominated as no. 10 in the Best Fantasy Novel category in the 1982 Locus Poll.

Even in today's world there are corners where past evils still cast their terror-haunted shadows. When the young man, Christian, came to his inheritance - a once grand mansion in just such a remote corner of France, he knew only that there was some sort of alternate claim to that ancient building and it lands. Even as the villagers acknowledged him as lord of the manor, there came two from the forest to stake out their interest. And with them came fear and desire, terror and love ... a combination which could be irresistible-and also fatal.
Tanith Lee, who won the August Derleth Fantasy Award for her marvelous novel DEATH'S MASTER, now spins a modern werewolf novel from threads of legend, forgotten sin, and dark romance. (back cover copy)

Metallic Love

Novel. 66,000 words.
The second volume in the The S.I.L.V.E.R. Series.
Nominated for a Romantic Times Readers' Award, March 2006.
Nominated for a Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature, June 2006

In her now-classic tale The Silver Metal Lover, award-winning author Tanith Lee told the spellbinding story of Jane and her forbidden love for a robot named Silver. In this stunning follow-up, the legend of their tragic romance lives on. But nothing is as it was -- or as it seems ... As an orphan growing up the slums, Loren read her clandestine copy of Jane's Story over and over, relishing every word. But Loren is no Jane. Savvy and street-smart, Loren could never be stirred by a man of metal, her passion never ignited by an almost-human -- even one designed for pleasure. Still, when the META corporation does the unthinkable and brings back updated versions of robots past -- Loren knows she must see Silver. And just like Jane, it is love at first sight. But Silver is now Verlis. If he was perfection before, he is now like a god. Yet he is more human than his creators think -- or fear. While Loren doesn't quite trust him, she will follow her twice-born lover into a battle to control his own destiny -- one that will reveal to her the most astonishing illusion of all. back cover copy.

Night's Master

Novel. 75,000 words.
Also available as a Spoken word recording.
The first volume in the Tales From The Flat Earth series.
Collected in Tales From The Flat Earth: The Lords Of Darkness.
Nominated for the 1979 World Fantasy Award for best novel.
Winner of the 1987 Gilgamés Award for best fantasy novel published in Spain (under the title El Señor de la Noche).

In those days the Earth was not a sphere and the demons dwelled in vast magical caverns beneath its surface. Wondrous cities dotted the land and strange peoples and fabulous beasts prowled the deserts and jungles of the world.
Supreme among those mighty demons was Azhrarn, NIGHT'S MASTER. He it was whose pranks made nightmares on Earth, who brought desire and danger to those it amused him to visit, and who could grant wonders and create horrors unspeakable.
Tanith Lee, author of THE BIRTHGRAVE and VOLKHAVAAR, has created in this new novel a fascinating version of the world as it might have been, a world reminiscent of the Arabian Nights and yet utterly unique.
"Lee is one of the most powerful and intelligent writers to work in heroic fantasy," wrote Publishers Weekly. And Station KCHU, Dallas, said, "Of Tanith Lee's novels, not one has failed to maintain high standards of originality, subtlety, imagination, intuition, and linguistic skill." NIGHT'S MASTER proves this again! (back cover copy)

In the age of demons, when the Earth was still flat, Prince Chuz, Delusion's Master, stole Azhriaz, daughter of the Demon Lord of Night, from the underworld citadel meant to be her eternal prison. Pursued by the vengeful Lord of Night, Chuz and Azhriaz fled to the world above, to the lands of mortal men, seeking a haven for their love.
Yet when demons dwelt in the realm of men, terror and wonders were bound to result. And so it was for all who came in contact with Chuz, Azhriaz, and their dread pursuer. As all three worked their powerful sorceries, men and women, from the highest lords to the lowest peasants, were led into new kingdoms of enchantment where a man could learn to commune with beasts, where magicians found their spells recast, where a woman's kindness could turn back time, and where a mortal might fulfill a prophecy that would place the very sun and moon within his grasp ...

Nightshades: Thirteen Journeys Into Shadow

Short story collection.
Nominated as no. 17 in the Best Collection/Anthology category in the 1994 Locus Poll.

Contents: Nightshade; The Mermaid; After The Guillotine; Meow; Il Bacio (Il Chiave); A Room With A Vie; Paper Boat; Blue Vase Of Ghosts; Pinewood; The Janfia Tree; The Devil's Rose; Huzdra; Three Days.
Note: each story in this book is preceded by a brief, introductory note by the author.

NIGHTSHADES - the novel
Finally he was staring up at the facade of the enchanted castle, towering above its prison wall. The shadow of it, the scents of its garden disturbed him, but he had expected nothing else.
Presently all the lights sprang into life along the four tiers of steps. He could see now the chess-piece marble horses snarling on the landings among the vines. A faceless man came down to the oriental gate.
'Madame Sovaz is expecting me,' Adam said.
Arrogant, pale-eyed Kristian is a wealthy aesthete, and the husband of a much younger wife. She, the prize ornament of his collection of treasures, is white-skinned, black-haired Sovaz, wayward and beautiful yet seemingly soulless - as if vampirised by some unknown force. She is currently toying with Adam, a handsome, ingenuous American who is the latest of her youthful lovers. And as the fates of this doomed trio converge, somewhere outside the glowing casements a creature of darkness prepares to feed ...
NIGHTSHADES - the stories
Among this fascinating and disturbing collection, The Mermaid casts a new and chilling light on the allure of an ancient mythical creature; Meow pinpoints the ultimate peril of mankind's fascination with the domestic feline; A Room with a Vie sucks us into the pulsing horror of bricks and mortar imbued with a life of their own. Paper Boat is eerily inspired by the strange death of the poet Shelley, The Janfia Tree by the dark and marvellous legends of tree spirits, while The Devil's Rose stems from more carnal obsessions.

Searching for the beautiful witch Jemhara, the magician Thryfe at last finds her in the reinvented town of Kandexa, where a strange and passionate wooing begins. From this union a son is born - golden-skinned, red-haired, blue-eyed - and thus the Lionwolf returns to the world of men.
Unaware of his birth, his original mother, the goddess Saftri has begun her own search for her lost love Althluan ... while elsewhere the black and shining ones, the children of Chillel, seek to establish claims on the ice-locked planet. Beyond, over, under all, the evil god Zzth rages and plans the ruin of these separate immortal lives.
Meanwhile, strafed by the tumult of such conflicting powers, the be-wintered Earth of mortals can only wait to learn her destiny.(back cover copy)

Personal Darkness

Novel. 125,000 words.
The second volume in the Blood Opera Sequence.
Nominated as no. 8 in the Best Horror Novel category in the 1994 Locus Poll.

The House is destroyed, the Scarabae dead or scattered. And the youngest and most dangerous of them, voracious for destruction, is free.
As Ruth, a mind as old as evil in the body of a teenage girl, unleashes blood and fire across southern England, the other survivors regroup their formidable resources. Scarabae wealth and power can replicate The House and even withstand the sun, while help is summoned from others of their kind.
But when Malach and Althene arrive, ageless and exotic, nothing transpires as Rachaela had supposed. For she and Ruth, the demon bred on her by Adamus - father and lover, now dead - are also Scarabae, and Scarabae cleave to their own. Rachaela, irresistibly drawn to Althene's mysterious web, must accept that her daughter belongs to dark, tormented Malach, and find new reasons for hope ...
Yet it is Camillo - malign, geriatric biker with the strength and soul of a child - and the women unwittingly entangled in his mischief, who will finally dispose Ruth's fate, and play the wild card in the Scarabae's endless game.
Subtly blending the human menaces of London's contemporary underworld with a dark vampiric seduction, PERSONAL DARKNESS enmeshes the reader further in the insidious enchantment of the Scarabae. (dustwrapper copy)

Prince On A White Horse

Young adult novel. 45,000 words.
Collected in Dark Castle, White Horse.

He was a prince, he knew. And he was riding a white horse. But who he was, and how he had got there, he had no idea. The horse didn't know either - it was good at protecting him from the many monsters that came to attack him, and it could turn into a lion, for difficult jobs like climbing mountains, but although it told the prince many things, it always denied that it could speak.
The prince needed all the help he could get. During a series of adventures in which he encountered two witches (one good and one bad), escaped from Beezles, Oggrings, Skolks and some of the other extremely unpleasant creatures that lived in the world, and acquired a companion, Gemant the Red Knight, the Prince discovered from Vultikan the Hoiler that he was the Looked-for Deliverer. Vultikan gave him a special sword and a suit of armour to equip him for the fray. His foe was Nulgrave, and the very mention of the word terrified everyone.
Suffering from confusion himself, and in a world which operated by no logic he could fathom, the prince's task was monumentally hard. But Nulgrave was horribly serious, so he persevered, and the result was as crazy and funny - and satisfying - as anyone could wish.
This highly original and amusing science fiction story will be enjoyed by readers of 10+. (dustwrapper copy)
