Viator was without a doubt the best and most interesting story in this collection. It was a fantastic short novel about love, madness and strange happenings. Shepard's writing was elegant and his descriptions of the surroundings and the characters were surprisingly vivid and lush. The main character, Wilander, was an interesting and flawed man, who lived and worked aboard the ship called Viator. His relationship with the local woman, Arlene, was fascinating and thoroughly believable. Shepard wrote about difficult subjects (madness, sex etc.) exquisitely - to be honest, Wilander's slow descent into madness was handled amazingly well.
After reading Viator I can say that Lucius Shepard is a gifted writer, who deserves to be more popular. I liked his prose very much. This short story collection is definitely worth reading (if you like well written prose and interesting stories, you must read Viator Plus). I decided to give this collection four stars, because I liked all the stories.
