Overview

FROM THE WOMAN WHO REDEFINED FANTASY

In the short span of a. few years, Mercedes Lackey has risen from an exciting new talent to a reigning superstar of fantasy. Last year's Fiddler Fair was a showcase of the wide scope of her talent; ranging from fantasy to science fiction, from screwball humor to macabre supernatural terror. Now comes the successor to that top-selling volume; Werehunter.

Lope through the night with a young woman who has been given the power to transform herself into a leopard, but who now finds herself pursued by a hunter who is more than human: Follow the adventures of Skitty, ship's cat extraordinaire, and telepathic problem-solver. Ride with a late night driver on a solitary road who learns that what appears to be a piece of cardboard blowing across the road is actually something very sinister in disguise. Join Lackey's celebrated occult detective Diana Tregarde as she attends a gathering of romance writers and encounters a visitor whose passionate desire is for fresh, warm blood. Return to the world of the Heralds of Valdemar. And there's much more.

Lackey's many fans will know what to expect: unforgettable characters in spellbinding stories from a grand master of fantasy and science fiction. And readers just discovering her have a treat in store.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Meet the Author

Mercedes Lackey, author of the bestselling Heralds of Valdemar and Bardic Voices series, began life as a child and has been attempting to rectify that error ever since. Named for actress Mercedes McCambridge, she has been trying with no success to get the Benz automobile authorities to recognize the natural link between her name and theirs, and offer her the use of an M100 or some variety of high-end sports car for gratis. This, too, has had a distinct lack of success. Other than writing she can be found at various times prying the talons of the birds of prey she is attempting to nurse back to health out of her hands, endangering her vision by creating various forms of Art Beadwork, and cross-stitching dragons, gryphons, and other semi-mythological fauna. At the moment, her hair is red, her favorite color is green, and she is covered by various members of her flock of pet parrots, cockatoos and macaws, all of which are trying to help her type8shgalal-akejbejks9ife.

    The one problem with a short story: it's short!

    Everything I wanted to say about this gathering of short stories has already been said (errr, written). Except one lonely complaint about each and every short story in the book: They were so short! I enjoyed them so much! I wish Mercedes had given a whole 300+ pages in seperate books to each of the stories! What happened to Glenda in the Wastelands? What happened to Dick White and Skitty?

    Enchanting Mix of Tales

    I found this gathering of short tales to be utterly facinating. They wound you into them, knowledge of the novels which they stemmed from was hardly necessary. I personally find her writing to always capture me, and even a few of the stories to fill in small gaps in the novels themselves relationship wise to the characters. Regardless, if you are a Mercerdes Lackey fan you will adore this book. If not, it would be the perfect introduction. An amusing read that left me with a smile.
