I did a little bit of research into the history of the word the Jim Crow Museum at Ferris State University is a wonderful resource for this kind of research and all I can come up with is that May misunderstood what it means. Despite this, I am finding the book to still be quite readable.
Finally, this is what my copy looks like I took this picture while waiting in line at the DMV, no cars were in motion at the time and my car was in park: This may be the best cover of any book I own. The hair! The surprised look on the face of the woman on the right! I always figured Aiken Drum had a big head and small body, hence looked like a tadpole — a polliwog. I know the name he takes later in the series is definitely from Celtic mythology.
I suspect there was confusion about polliwog vs. The Golliwog never made it to these shores. Everyone is white: One thing to keep in mind is that May started writing these books long, long before their actual publication dates.
The first two books in particular. If you think of it as a book written piecemeal over the course of the s and then given a quick edit to go out into the world, it looks a lot better. And, hey, by the standards of or whenever it was the book is really quite progressive — lots of female characters, lots of female POV characters, several gay characters.
The Many-Colored Land
Both the book and the rest of the series blow right past the Bechdel Test. Seelie and Unseelie Courts: Celts are awesome!
But okay — the elven stuff is not bad here, and the Celty stuff is no more than an occasional nose-wrinkler. I have the strong impression that, once Richard had served his narrative purpose, May lost interest in him altogether. The two above are very nice, but the Whelan is terrific; look it up and see for yourself. Marc Remillard. I wish I were slightly more knowledgeable about Catholic theology, too. Excellent point about the books totally passing the Bechdel Test and being progressive for their time.
I am trying very hard to keep that in mind as I watch what May does to Felice. And I am seeing more characters of color showing up, which is nice. I think rather that Remillard hijacks the books once he shows up. May is clearly interested in at least some of the characters from Group Green, especially Aiken Drum and Felice. And a lot of the minor characters are delightful too; Tony Wayland and Dougal, most obviously, but others as well. The scene where Basil meets Marc on top of the mountain is very brief but just perfect.
A word on Tony Wayland: Welund tasted misery among snakes. The stout-hearted hero endured troubles had sorrow and longing as his companions cruelty cold as winter — he often found woe.
Dougal is of course a character May would have met many times among fans.
She was an active fan herself for many years from the s onwards. What she does to Felice: Mark Remillard gets fire-flayed; Aiken Drum nearly dies from the psychic aftereffects of mental cannibalism; any number of appealing minor characters get killed off or tormented in various ways.
What happens to Felice is extreme but not inconsistent. One last thought: Oh, that is a lovely cover! And very clearly Early Michael Whelan, too. And Richard dressed up like Amerie.
A clarification on what I mean about Felice: I am generally okay with authors doing terrible things to characters. I do not believe that people who are sadomasochists are fundamentally broken, although I am aware that this was not an uncommon belief at the time this book was written on the other hand, 50 Shades of Grey makes it abundantly clear that there are still a lot of people out there who still think that.
Then again, Felice is intended to be the Morrigan, so the violence and possible lack of sanity on her part makes sense in terms of the Celtic woo! I do like—quite a bit—how it is very clear in these books that the forced impregnation scheme of the Tanu is wrong wrong wrong and that the physical and emotional effects are shown quite clearly Martha.
And how the women have agency and positions of power that are not dependent on their relationships with men. The fact that May is able to bring all these things together for the grand finale at the end of the fourth book is a real triumph of storytelling.
I like that. OTOH, the fact that Felice pretty promptly reverts to form suggests that, yes, May did think that sadomasochistic people were broken beyond fixing — or anyway that at least this one was.Across the world, children with unusual mental powers are being born, known as operants.
