Overview

There have been many events in the past 230 years of the half-magical race of the Deryni that were too short to turn into novels. Katherine Kurtz has been writing these when not occupied with longer works, and they are now collected here. Some have appeared in books and other sources now hard to locate. More than half of the fiction is new — including a major story of how Denis Arilan became the first Deryni priest in 200 years.

Katherine Kurtz has provided an introduction and individual headings for each story to indicate her feelings and intents in writing each tale. Additionally, there is the complete first story she ever wrote — the first version of her Deryni vision, and how it all came about.

For all the myriad lovers of the Deryni, this should be a must book — both for pleasure and as a reference!

A wonderful surprise for readers already familiar with the Deryni universe. A double one for readers who are just starting. A tasty Deryni dish to tempt the appetite for the sets of great novels. I came upon this after I finished the 'Camber' series, and it was wonderful to see Cathan,killed off early in that series and my favorite couple Rhys and Evaine as children. See how Rhys accepts his destiny, for my favorite story, and a gem in the Deryni universe. Not many authors are as sensitive to their readers. Many authors have to kill off a beloved character and it ends there, with no early tales to warm the heart. Thanks, Katherine Kurtz!
