Editorial Reviews

Peter Beagle's followup to The Innkeeper's Song is a collection of longish fantasy stories set in that same universe. The stories range from adventurous to introspective, humorous to suspenseful, but all share Beagle's gift for language and his ability to bring his characters to life.
—Don D'Ammassa
