The beginning of The Dirdir, from Balul Zac Ag (that name!),
Balul Zac Ag. Yes! I agree wholeheartedly. "...Balul Zac Ag, the 'unnatural dreamtime',...".

I think the first sentence in The Dirdir may very well be the most delicious opening paragraph in any of his books. An irresistible flavour of fantasy mixed into the science fiction, based on astrology and other arcane lore, reminding very much of Clark Ashton Smith's beginnings to some of his Zothique stories. It just doesn't get any better than that!
