A must have for fans of the Gormenghast books this anthology constitutes a chapter in the life of i Titus Groan i that unfolds beyond the pages of the author s monumental trilogy Disturbingly atmospheric these stories are told with the force and simplicity of allegory This special volume includes rare stories as well as some never before seen illustrations, Titus Groan is seven years old Lord and heir to the crumbling castle Gormenghast A gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets cloisters and corridors stairwells and dungeons it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age old rituals a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue treachery and death Steerpike who began his climb across the roofs when Titus was born is now ascending the spiral staircase to the heart of the castle and in his wake lie imprisonment manipulation and murder br br i Gormenghast i is the second volume in Mervyn Peake s widely acclaimed trilogy but it is much more than a sequel to i Titus Groan i it is an enrichment and deepening of that book br br The Gormenghast Trilogy ranks as one of the twentieth century s most remarkable feats of imaginative writing br, Titus almost flees oppressive Castle Rituals Lost in a sandstorm helped by Muzzlehatch owner of traveling zoo and his ex lover Juno stranded in big city arrested for vagrancy he longs for home Nobody has heard of Gormenghast few believe Titus wants to prove it is real, Starts with the birth and ends with the first birthday celebrations of the heir to the grand tradition bound castle of Gormenghast A grand miasma of doom and foreboding weaves over the sterile rituals of the castle Villainous Steerpike seeks to exploit the gaps between the formal rituals and the emotional needs of the ruling family for his own profit
