Comments for Thief of Shadows
"Thief of Shadows" by Fred Chappell is a prequel to the other numerous Shadow stories published in previous issues of Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine.
"The Diamond Shadow" was the second FSF story I ever read. That one was vaguely novel except for Peter Pan's shadow having a life of its own and all. After that each new story has been a chore for me to read.
So we're back to this magical realm where shadows are real, tangible things. As always, they are potentially dangerous things. Even in this case poisonous.
If like the series you'll like this one. If you don't, go ahead and skip it.
