Meet the Author

Mercedes Lackey was born in Chicago Illinois on June 24, 1950. The very next day, the Korean War was declared. It is hoped that there is no connection between the two events. She graduated from Purdue University in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. This, she soon learned, along with a paper hat and a nametag will qualify you to ask “would you like fries with that?” at a variety of fast-food locations.
She had always written from her early teens, and developed this hobby by writing fan-fiction for various amateur magazines. In the 1980s she took a job programming computers for a major airline and as a consequence moved to Oklahoma. At this time she met both Marion Zimmer Bradley (author of THE MISTS OF AVALON) and C J Cherryh, both of whom helped mentor her from amateur into professional writer. Her first book was published in 1985. In 1990 she met artist Larry Dixon at a small Science Fiction convention in Meridian Mississippi. They began working together, and were married in Las Vegas at the Excalibur chapel by Merlin the Magician (aka the Reverend Duckworth) in 1992. They moved to their current home, the “second weirdest house in Oklahoma.” She has many pet parrots and “the house is never quiet.”
Misty is approaching 100 books in print, and her foreign editions include Russian, German, Czech, Polish, French, Italian, Turkish, and Japanese. She is the author, alone or in collaboration, of the Heralds of Valdemar, Elemental Masters, Secret World Chronicles, 500 Kingdoms, Diana Tregarde, Heirs of Alexandria, Obsidian Mountain, Dragon Jouster, Bedlam Bards, Shadow Grail, and other series and standalone books. A night-owl by nature, she is generally found at the keyboard between 10 PM and 6 AM. For more information, see her website: www.mercedeslackey.com.

This download is only 16 pages. I really do not believe it is an attempt by Barnes and Nobel to cheat anyone. I think they are just as surprised as I was to discover something like this. Beware of cheap books. They are NOT always a good deal. I guess that old saying is true. You get what you pay for. I called Barnes and Nobel customer support all prepared to battle it out with them but the lady who answered was an absolute delight to work with. She DLed the "book to her NOOK and found the same 16 pages. She then offered to refund my money. It took about ten minutes in all. What a pleasant surprise. I'll continue to do business here, but I will be a LOT more careful about buying "cheap" books. B&N gets 5 stars for their customer support. Marion Zimmer Bradley Publisher gets ZERO!

getting a refund is not hard, all you have to do is call the 800#

To the people complaining "it's only 16 pages", wake up. It is a SHORT STORY. It is the first of four connected short stories. If you want them all, buy them all, or buy Werehunter. But stop complaining that a short story is (for some odd reason) *short*.
