"The Fishing of the Demon Sea" novella is what makes this book; it's by far the most memorable thing that Shea's written that I've read. It includes demons that, perhaps because of their organic, physical, non-spiritual quality, seem more predatory than those in any other work. A fantasy classic. Bruce Sterling wrote about it in one of his early newsletters as an example of the then-new decadence in fantasy, and it's a fine decadence.
