Cloud and Ashes is a triumphant, heart-rending triptych, a mosaic of folklore, intellectual pyrotechnics, and marvelous, motley characters that takes the breath and makes the blood beat faster. -Catherynne M. Valente, author of In the Night Garden. No one else writes like Greer Gilman. The Washington Post Book World. I am wind and memory who spells this.

Greer Ilene Gilman is one of the most significant writers in the world today and I hope she gives us something new to follow up to or surpass her wonderful classic "Moonwise". We do not go to "Moonwise" for plot. The book can only be compared to James Joyce's astonishing "Finnegans Wake" but unlike the Wake Gilman shifts back and forth from dream conciousness to a more visionary form of conciousness. Long live Greer Ilene Gilman.

Greer Ilene Gilman was educated at Wellesley Greer Gilman has been writing stories set in Cloud, her Northern mythscape, for a quarter of a century. Her books are written for the ear, as much as for the understanding. Like the earliest stories, they are meant to be sung.

Sylvie and Ariane, two recently reunited friends, become inextricably caught up in the fantasy world they created years before

Let it be known: this is a tough book.

It's a book for people who love words, old ones. People who like looking up things they didn't know (expect to do it 2-3 times per page if, like me, you believe yourself to have a decent vocabulary and read 40-50 books per year). It's for people who love the old, dark, original tales meant to scare you away from the night.

MOONWISE is a journey into one of the most delicate and rich worlds of the imagination, but reading it is a lot like studying: you have to pay attention. It helps to read it out loud, especially the sections written in dialect.

So if reading and thinking are, for you, two separate things, don't pick up this book, because you'll be frustrated. But if you love language for language's sake and want to fall into a world sunk in mist and myth and the turning of the world, this one might be for you.

I tried reading this 6 times before I was ready to put in the effort, but once I did I was completely enchanted, and it's one I keep coming back to.

The "description" is not a description at all but a review by someone who obviously wasn't prepared to enter this world.

No doubt one man's cloud is another man's clod, but that Publisher's Weekly view seems particularly misleading and tonedeaf to "Moonwise." (...) Look at some other evaluations of the book:

"Moonwise remarkably attempts to compose an entire long fantasy at a pitch and density of language reminiscent of Gerard Manley Hopkins . . . . GIG's deep knowledge of English etymology (including dialectal variations) charges every word with all its possible meanings . . . . Moonwise is a work of inexhaustible richness." -Encyclopedia of Fantasy

"Greer Gilman is a writer like no one else. Many try to employ the matter of myth and folktale, but their tongues are inadequate-Gilman can employ words as the bards of Ireland did, to make realities, and she does it handily, and over and over. Moonwise doesn't resemble a work of the past age-it is the past age come back new, in its clothes and its language and its dark riddling heart. Moonwise simply has no peers."-John Crowley

"Moonwise is an amazing book, a work of genius. It deserves to stand beside Lud-in-the-Mist or the writings of Lord Dunsany as a truly original seminal classic. And yet the most remarkable thing about it is that, amidst its intense and serious magic and its astonishing use of words, it causes you to laugh aloud-quite suddenly, taken unawares by an outrageous pun or an ingenious one-liner. I love this book and admire its nature magic more every time I read it."-Diana Wynne Jones

"There are some books that seem to have existed forever. That when you find them for the first time you are only rediscovering something you had lost, long ago. Hope Mirrlees's Lud-in-the-Mist is one of these; David Lindsay's Voyage to Arcturus is a second; Tolkien's Lord of the Rings is another. Green Ilene Gilman's Moonwise is one of that company. It does not take you to where the dreams start. It is where the dreams start."-John Clute

If you look at the copyright date for the review, it's 1991 -- this is a special hardback reissue by Prime Books. It's a shame Amazon.com couldn't find a more up-to-date review for this edition.
