This seems like one of those releases that one instantly desires to own, from the beginning of the first sample. Very intriguing.

Anybody (especially Brian) know anything about Altered Carbon and the rest of that series by Richard Morgan? It sounds interesting to me, and while it's filed in "science fiction" it sounds almost like a suspense/thriller story with sci-fi elements.
9Dragons, have you ever tried out William Hope Hodgson? Judging by your enjoyment of Dunsany and the rest, I'm sure you'd like him also. I have been picking up the new volumes of Clark Ashton Smith's work, finally a complete edition of his fantasies. I have always thought he was underrated so it's nice to see him get first class treatment.
Oddly, Mother Sunrise had the same effect on me- couldn't get into it, couldn't get into it, and then suddenly, "Click"! Now I consider it one of Stefano's finest.
Next step: you simply MUST get Apsaras! Drop-dead gorgeous drones & watery sound samples, along with Amelia Cuni's wordless vocals. I put off ordering this at first, because I had misgivings about vocals on an ambient disc, but her voice adds to the ambience rather than distracting. Perhaps Stefano's finest.
Another highlight for me is Password for Entheogenic Experience- deep, intense, trippy & hypnotic. Smoke a joint and wear headphones for this one, if you're so inclined... (no, forget it, that would be against the law. )
