5.0 étoiles sur 5 George R. R. Martin's First Publication! 3 mai 2001
Par Dan Dean - Publié sur
It was twenty-years old, and had an ugly cover, so I figured A SONG FOR LYA was out-of-print for a good reason. But since being blown away by A GAME OF THRONES, I have yet to find anything of Martin's less than superb. This short, but fabulous book turned out to be no exception.

Sci-Fi and Horror are blended to excellent result in this collection of 10 short stories, featuring telepaths, ghosts, strange life forms, and very imaginative worlds. The standouts were "With Morning Comes Mistfall", "Override", and the Hugo Award-Winning title-story, "A Song For Lya", but in truth- there wasn't a bad apple in the bunch.

My personal favorite was, "Dark, Dark Were The Tunnels" where Nuclear Armageddon has destroyed the face of the Earth long ago, and only two groups of people have survived. It took me a few pages to realize just what I was reading, but then it really pulled me in!

Several of these stories have also appeared in Martin's later collections, but unfortunately, they too are all out-of-print at the moment. However, the popularity of A Song Of Ice And Fire means that many of these collections and stories will soon be republished in the near future. So if you can't find them in libraries or used bookstores... be patient!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 One short story only for Kindle 9 juin 2009

Reading the previous reviews led me to believe this was a short story collection. For the Kindle at least, it is not. This is only contains 'A Song for Lya' not any of the other stories mentioned. Its a well written story but I would have rather paid a little bit more and purchased the whole collection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Provocative Fiction From A Short Story Master 3 août 2003
Par cameron-vale - Publié sur
A fine collection of early (1971 - 1974) fiction from a much underrated master of the short story. Although George R.R. Martin has attained a great degree of success as a novelist, his most memorable work has been in the short story/novella format. A SONG FOR LYA was the author's very first book, published initially in February of 1976 in an Avon paperback edition, and while it may not be his finest collection, the stories presented here have the invigorating freshness and energy of a dazzlingly talented then-young writer first making his mark in the world.
The most notable of the stories, "A Song For Lya" arguably still ranks as Martin's finest work. "Lya" is a beautifully sad meditation on love and loss, telling a moving tale of a young, vital woman who is willingly absorbed into The Greeshka, a strange collective "religion" that ultimately sucks the individuality out of those who choose to join it. It deservedly won the Hugo Award as best novella of 1973. "With Morning Comes Mistfall" is an equally powerful story, a melancholic examination of what happens when the cold pursuit of knowledge ultimately leads to the destruction of an important, beautiful myth.
Other stories include: "Override", in which animated corpses are used as cheap labor in a mining colony, "Dark, Dark Were The Tunnels", a claustrophobic horror tale about a devolved worm-like man who makes disastrous contact with humans exploring his deep underground home turf, and "The Second Kind of Loneliness", a Poe-like tale of isolation, loneliness and madness in a remote space outpost.
This is a nice, oversized paperback repackaging of one of George R.R. Martin's best short story collections. The simple fact that it's the only such collection currently available by this fine writer makes it an absolute must-buy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Misleaded by Other Reviews... 16 octobre 2010

I thought I was buying a collection of stories per other reviewers' comments. But the kindle version only contains one story -> which is as titled.

Had I know better, might as well save the two dollars for the Dreamsong collections. The story is good... but I rather pick the option of saving my two bucks for the dreamsong collections (the story is also included in there).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treasure for all Martin fans 22 février 2004
Par Katie - Publié sur
These stories are by far the greatest short fantasy/scifi fiction I have ever read. Martin puts Bradbury to shame in this spectacular collection. Each character is well defined, living in worlds lightyears away from our own...but at the same time, very similar. My favorites were "Override" and "Dark, Dark Were the Tunnels", and "The Exit to San Breta". "A Song for Lya", probably the featured story of this novel, was, in my opinion, the most poorly written. But at the same time, it was the most powerful. It was one of those stories (as with all in this collection) that someone could write hundreds of pages trying to explain, and never get it right. But in less than fifty pages, Martin captured one of the most elusive ideas that we all have in our minds, and all understand to some degree, and put it into a very touchable setting, so we can examine it closely. Truly, these stories are each a masterpiece. Martin is an author that has never once yet let me down on anything he has written.
