''Love seems to be the balance pole. Too little and your load shifts precariously one way, too much and it swings the other.''
Love Songs is a unique collection of short works. It was intended to be a concert of sweet old love songs to ease the soul. Instead the pieces are truer to the agony of blues. Some are amusing-some abrasive-some tragic. And all are thought provoking cautionary tales.
Death of a Mordot, the crowning novella, illustrates the fickle nature of gods and the inability of the inhabitants of that world to feel the compassion needed to survive. It is a fantasy romance of diversity, tolerance and faith, all that good stuff we could use in our world where our gods, hard cash and cruel power, are just as fickle and even more dangerous.
This is a book to be read curled up in a cozy place with your favorite comfort food-or on the subway on your way to fight dragons. Better yet, if you are a dragon, on a hillside on your way to fight men.
''A superb collection Robertson really tells it like it is! This is a MUST READ!''
