Ivory: Gamblers, Warlords, and Elephants, Oh My!
Posted by Lou Anders
The Library Journal has just given Mike Resnick's Ivory: A Legend of Past and Futurea starred review. They say the novel, about a search across time and space for the tusks of the legendary Kilimanjaro elephant, "plays to his greatest strengths--as a raconteur without peer, capable of weaving together a series of linked stories into a seamless whole, and as a compassionate and thoughtful observer of the human condition. Peopled with gamblers, warlords, artists, and politicians and overseen by the shadow of the enormous creature who once ruled the grasslands of Africa... highly recommended for all sf collections."
