Delusion’s Master
is the third book of the stunning arabesque high fantasy series Tales from the Flat Earth, which, in the manner of The One Thousand and One Nights, portrays an ancient world in mythic grandeur via connected tales.

A long time ago when the Earth was Flat, beautiful indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above, curious passionate demons lived in the Underearth realm below, and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle.

Chuz, Prince of Madness, third of the Lords of Darkness—beauty on one side, foul corruption on the other—“takes pity” on the world. In his gentle, soft embrace, mortal minds repose in a tide of illusion and twisted desire. Yet no one is immune from the sweetest madness of all, and even immortals fall at the cast of the bone dice….

Come within this ancient world of brilliant darkness and beauty, of glittering palaces and wondrous elegant beings, of cruel passions and undying love. Discover the wonder that is the Flat Earth.

Tanith Lee seems to be a "love her or hate her" kind of author. While I haven't enjoyed all of her books, there are 3 that made strong impressions on me as a young 20-something. One was Delusion's Master, which is really the third in that series but I mistakenly read it first. (The other two are The Silver Metal Lover and Electric Forest.) While I also enjoyed Night's Master and Death's Master, they didn't live up to this one. Never before had I seen characters with such depth of emotion and quiet drama (just perfect for dramatic 20-year old me). It was a stunning entree into the world of fantasy for this reader.

Next in the Flat Earth series, and it focusses a bit more on the demon of darkness than the one of madness, mostly because Chuz wants to punish Azhrarn who wants to punish humanity for worshiping the gods instead of thanking him for saving them. The madness is both subtle and overt, taking many forms, and is often caused by love. I didn't like this one as much as the others in the series, it didn't feel as emotionally deep (the snake fingers on the cover got a post it note pasted over them as well).
