SF Site calls it a classic

Got to point to SF Site’s review of City WithoutEnd. Greg L. Johnson said:

“. . . a series that wowed at the beginning for the complexity and creativity of its invented setting, earning comparisons to classics like Riverworld and Ringworld, has now filled that setting with characters whose motives and aspirations are often hidden and always conflicting, a situation that makes The Entire and the Rose at least as comparable to Dune and the tension-filled novels of C.J. Cherryh as it is those other works. Which means that at the end of City Without End, even though several story lines have been concluded, a couple in surprising and dramatic fashion, the crux of the problem still remains. Titus Quinn’s family and loved ones are scattered across two different universes, and whether he can save or hold on to any of it remains in serious doubt. The stage is now set for the final volume in what is already looking like one of the classic science fiction series of our time.

    Thanks, Janna! And how do you get the cool sparkles in your avatar artwork?

    Honestly, I have no idea. I picked up this icon in an icon communty here a few years back because I thought it was so pretty. The sparkly makes me happy (which isn’t always true, but I thought this was quite tasteful–because, you know, tasteful is especially important when it comes to LJ icons ::grin::).

    Huh, there are icon communities? You are such a maven!

    Re: Classic

    ::chuckle:: There are communities for everything, Kay! Search on “icon” and you’ll probably find about a zillion communities. And, of course, if you narrow your searches, you’ll find more specific themes. There are rules, of course, for copying icons–each community has its rules on its profile page–but they’re pretty consistent across the board.
