I am bewildered. The book had beautiful words arranged in long passages. But their overall meaning didn't congeal in any purposeful way that i could discern. Came here for a Gene Wolfe Jeff Vandermeer hybrid, found a chaotic surreal dream I can barely recall.

I was amazed by Cisco's The Divinity Student and dove into this one expecting more of the same... but happily it's altogether different and packs a new suitcase full of wonders.
The world here seems a bit closer to our own than that of The Divinity Student... the characters a bit more familiar in their motivations. The story is actually wilder and weirder but perhaps less mysterious. That, or I've grown accustomed to Mr. Cisco's charms and the culture shock is muted now.
Either way it's an excellent read.

If you haven't read Michael Cisco, this is where you should start.
Revealing anything about this book is tantamount to betrayal. Just keep an open mind and be prepared to not comprehend the first time. It is an experience you are paying for, not just a book. Definitely the most accessible of all his novels, still a baroque masterpiece.

Michael Cisco is often compared to the brilliant Thomas Ligotti, but to me he clearly has a vision all his own, as demonstrated in his first novel THE DIVINITY STUDENT, in his story "The Genius of Assassins" in the anthology LEVIATHAN 3, and now in his novel THE TYRANT. Indeed, THE TYRANT can not be compared to anything I've read except, perhaps - remotely - to fellow surrealist Alfred Kubin's THE OTHER SIDE, since in both novels a powerful and frightening figure remains tantalizingly but resolutely "off-screen" for much of the book, while still exerting his malignant influence over the proceedings. Cisco's book is a quest story, a road trip, a love story, a keyhole look into heaven and hell, and most of all an eerie, slow-motion train of connected nightmares, conveying bizarre characters through unsettling places. He is a master of strange settings, odd details, uncanny images. His prose style seems almost like automatic writing at times, quirky and poetic. The atmosphere is laid on thick, but this is no misclaculation; the environments and the action and the characters are as one. There are few authors who can rival him for conveying the feeling of dream. His cinematic counterpart might be David Lynch, or the Brothers Quay. Cisco's work isn't for the average reader; it's for the discriminating, the jaded, the daring reader. He is absinthe in a world of Pepsi. So drink deep, and enjoy the hallucinations.
