    1. A rather strange sci-fi story that looks like it's about time travel, but isn't. Seems rather full of itself, and is definitely distracted from where it's going.

    2. I have been a fan of Robert Holdstock for a while, both for the Mythago Wood series and his Merlin/Jason and the Argonauts books, which I still haven't finished oops I've had this book on my shelf for a very long time, and as part of my effort to deplete the TBR pile I've finally got around to it.Interestingly, this reminded me of two books. Firstly, the idea of a planet with weird time distortions of course calls to mind Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos; this came first, and I can't help wondering [...]

    3. An early, mostly worthy effort by Holdstock. I read this because it is a tie-in to his wonderful Tour of the Universe. The situation that he imagines is very unique and evocative, and, it turns out, deceptive: the time winds of Kamelios are not what they seem to be. On the other hand, the narrative is verbose, and at times baroque, but without the texture and harmony required to make such prose delightful. In typical Holdstockian style, it is often difficult to tell if events are real or imagine [...]

    4. Disclosure: I'm a massive Holdstock fan, everything from Mythago Wood on is pretty perfect in my opinion. So I come to this book from a strange place.From a fannish perspective this is an fascinating spin on his ideas, on the subconscious, alienness, love and quest. And I can't judge it apart from that context. If I try I would say it's odd, pulpy (not necessarily a bad thing), and a bit too heavy on meaningful monologues. My biggest disquiet was the way the plot-driven need for revelations/reve [...]

    5. E' un pianeta unico in tutta la galassia: oggetti del passato e del futuro si materializzano all'improvviso come fantasmi, portati dal soffio di quelli che sembrano veri e propri "venti del tempo". Obbedendo allo stesso principio, cose e manufatti del presente possono scomparire da un momento all'altro dove? Scienziati e ricercatori, avventurieri ed esploratori arrivano sul pianeta dei venti del tempo con la speranza di risolverne l'enigma o di arricchirsi come nessun uomo si è mai arricchito p [...]
