Tired of hearing about Jirel of Joiry, C. L. Moore's classic fantasy heroine? I've done plenty of work with her, and since she had a tremendous effect on me as a writer—my heroine Kristel from Z-Dancer owes Jirel a heavy debt of inspiration—I've find myself coming back to the topic of the fierce and beautiful noblewoman of the medieval fiefdom of Joiry. I wrote an in-depth article on the the Jirel stories which is currently available on Black Gate. And now along comes another article about Jirel: a book review of a recent release of all the stories, Black God's Kiss. This volume (which at last includes the elusive "Quest of the Starstone") comes to us from Planet Stories, a division of Paizo Publications. I have a few more of Paizo nifty reprint volumes to review, so keep watching this spot for updates on when they will appear.
At this point, what else can I say about Jirel? If you haven't read her exploits, well... you know how I feel about her.
