I know there are at least a few people on the forum who have read E.R. Eddison's classic fantasies, including The Worm Ouroboros and the Zimiamvian Trilogy. I've read Ouroboros and am nearly finished with A Fish Dinner in Memison, the second book of the trilogy. Have found each to be an astounding work with the kind of merit that no current writer of fantasy (with maybe one or two shining exceptions) can even hope to match. At the same time, Eddison's books leave one baffled as well as dazzled--the underlying philosophy can seem muddled sometimes, and Eddison's style is occasionally impenetrable. But the dazzlement is what stays with me the most. Is anyone interested in discussing Eddison (any of the books)? In particular, has anyone read the Zimiamvian books and actually understood them?
