The Compleat Traveller in Black by John Brunner. Not really sure why I picked this one up: I think I probably saw it referenced in some reviews. Slightly offbeat fantasy ss/novella collection. Not my usual cup of tea but I am enjoying it.
I enjoyed this book a lot. It's genuinely weird, and while it seems to be largely set in a fantasy world, it isn't doing the usual sub-Tolkien thing. It's more like a Hieronymus Bosch painting in a novel. A strange mix of amusing and unsettling.
