Coming from Norilana- NIGHT’S MASTER by Tanith Lee


Norilana Books is proud to present the definitive hardcover and trade paperback reissue of a Tanith Lee classic!

NIGHT’S MASTER by Tanith Lee is the first book of the stunning arabesque high fantasy series _Tales from the Flat Earth,_ which, in the manner of THE ONE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS, portrays an ancient world in mythic grandeur via connected tales.

Long before Vera Nazarian’s DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE or Catherynne M. Valente’s THE ORPHAN’S TALES, beloved British author Tanith Lee created the first truly complete, modern and sophisticated fantasy version of the Arabian Nights, and spun wondrous stories within stories, unparalleled profound tales of arcane mystery, dark love, and bright desire.

At last, these are the definitive editions, revised and formatted as the author originally intended, containing a new original introduction by Tanith Lee, and a unique previously unpublished interior reproduction of an original handwritten manuscript page. The cover image is a design by Tanith Lee’s husband and artist John Kaiine, incorporating her own artwork in the center frame, which makes it a fan and collector’s delight.

Front Cover:

Hardcover Wraparound jacket:

Long time ago when the Earth was Flat, beautiful indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above, curious passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below, and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Azhrarn, Lord of the Demons and the Darkness, was the one who ruled the Night, and many mortal lives were changed because of his cruel whimsy. And yet, Azhrarn held inside his demon heart a profound mystery which would change the very fabric of the Flat Earth forever…

Come within this ancient world of brilliant darkness and beauty, of glittering palaces and wondrous elegant beings, of cruel passions and undying love.

Discover the exotic wonder that is the Flat Earth.

TANITH LEE is the author of 77 novels, 14 collections, and almost 300 short stories, plus 4 radio plays (broadcast by the BBC) and 2 scripts for the TV cult UK SF series _Blake’s 7._ Her work, which has been translated into over 17 languages, ranges through fantasy, SF, gothic, YA and children’s books, contemporary, historical and detective novels, and horror. This year she was awarded the prestigious title of Grand Master of Horror 2009. Major awards include the August Derleth Award for DEATH’S MASTER, the second book in the Flat Earth series.
