NIGHT'S MASTER is the first 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.
Long time ago when the Earth was Flat, beautiful indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above, curious passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below, and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Azhrarn, Lord of the Demons and the Darkness, was the one who ruled the Night, and many mortal lives were changed because of his cruel whimsy. And yet, Azhrarn held inside his demon heart a profound mystery which would change the very fabric of the Flat Earth forever...
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 exotic wonder that is the Flat Earth.

Praise for Tales of the Flat Earth:
“Lee has craftsmanship...style, wit, delicacy, strength, and depth of imagination and a sure touch for words.... Night's Master is like a treasure chest spilled open with cascading dreams of silk, jewels, demon horses, perfumes, spices, tapestries, and (most previous of all) a sense of wonder.” —The British Fantasy Society Bulletin
“A strange fin de siècle eroticism pervades these finely felt and well-written tales. They possess a certain raw power that derives from a simplicity recalling myth and legend.” —Publishers Weekly
“A satisfying fantasy, and one which shows real talent at work. It could easily become a cult item. Recommended.” —Library Journal
“The style is complex and fascinating, the plotting and interweaving of characters and action meticulously worked out and invariably entertaining.” —SF Chronicle
“Here we have storytelling at its best and fantasy in its purest and strongest essence. Tanith Lee portrays with a masterful hand an amazing, ancient world.” —SFSite
“Tanith Lee is fantastika’s Joyce Carol Oates.... You can imagine these timeless stories whispered around an oasis campfire or in a starship’s engine room.” ―Locus (for Tanith Lee)
