Very definitely a creature of 1969 Berkeley CA written by one of the elder stateswomen of SF writing at the time this is a tightly written urban horror fantasy novel Kind of a cross between the films Labyrinth The Descent and Strange Days although it preceded all three There are other reviews that go into great length about how the book s tonal shift deaden it s pace and take away from it If you think of it as William S Burroughs ORPHEUS AND EURODYCE you ll be much closer to its core

Weird fiction indeed Published in 1969 this novel from Margaret St Clair one of the few well known female SF writers from the last century concerns a race of dark elves who live in a sprawling subterranean world of caverns tunnels and waterfalls called Underearth They occasionally visit the surface to steal things and kidnap people and the narrative begins with one such kidnapping I enjoyed the writing uite a bit but my appreciation at not knowing exactly where the tale would go next was also the biggest weakness at times it came across as disjointed and meandering Still I was never bored with this very odd somewhat dated story 35 stars
