E.R. Eddison: Bibliography
A Fish Dinner in Memison


A Fish Dinner in Memison is the second book, both chronologically and in order of publication, of the Zimiamvian trilogy. This book, in its Zimiamvian portions, takes place over a five week period, ending nearly one year before the king's death. While The Mezentian Gate was the last to be written and published, it is chronologically the first book of the series. It covers a period of more than seventy years, beginning twenty years before the birth of King Mezentius and ending with his death. The first book to be published, and the final one in the chronology, is Mistress of Mistresses. Its narrative takes place over the two years beginning ten months after the death of King Mezentius.
