Greg Feeley writes up the Aegypt series in  The Philadelphia Inquirer:

With Endless Things, John Crowley brings to a conclusion the quartet of novels, acknowledged by his present publisher as a single sequence titled Ægypt, upon which he has labored for the last 20 years. A highly ambitious meditation on fantasy and desire, mythopoeia, secret histories, and the greater significances (if any) behind the texture of everyday life, Crowley’s series began publication, with new volumes appearing every six or seven years, from a highly commercial publisher that maintained (for a time) the belief that his books could be not merely intensely loved by a small body of readers, but bought in large numbers.
