Series is significant for juxtaposing SF and fantasy worlds, separated by a curtain (for a portal motif), and mixing sentient machines with werewolves and unicorns, a computer Oracle with a feudal society threatened by environmental degredation through over-mining of a mineral. Cf. and contrast R. Zelazny's Trumps of Doom. (Brian Wolter [ENG 113], 02/12/95)
