Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Stephen R. Donaldson demonstrates new breadth and range in his first book of short stories…There is no doubt that Donaldson remains the reigning master of epic fantasy.”—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“He has a versatility that few had previously guessed…[The] stories are fresh, original, and, in a couple of cases, simply superb….exciting fare for Donaldson fans and the uninitiated alike.”—Denver Rocky Mountain News

 

“Donaldson proves himself at home in a surprising number of story genres…Of those stories that are fantasies, ‘The Lady in White’ and ‘Ser Visal’s Tale’ are exceptional…Overall, Daughter of Regals is a good collection.”—Columbus Dispatch

“The best tales here (both written for this collection) are the title story, a real good twist on magical power achieved at the proper time and place, and ‘Ser Visal’s Tale,’ on betrayal and ultimate triumph…an interesting overview on Donaldson’s style and the turnings of his imagination.”—Los Angeles Times
