Overview

Seven stories of magic and music, exploring worlds from ancient Ireland to a steampunk future. Find a few old favorites here, plus some brand-new tales of bardic power, spooky adventure, and how music might possibly heal our broken world. Includes the following works:
 
INTO THE FAERIE HILL – Blind minstrel Turlough O'Carolan spends one night beneath the faerie hill that will change him, forever...
 
THE HARPER'S ESCAPE-- A sad, mystical tale of a harper fleeing for her life in Elizabethan Ireland.
 
THE QUIET GIFT--Set in the Collegium of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar, a  young woman with Bardic Talent must learn to accept her gift as it is, not how she wishes it might be.
 
THE CLOCKWORK HARP-- A spooky steampunk retelling of the Cruel Sister ballad, set in the universe of Victoria Eternal.
 
MUSIC'S PRICE-- Jeremy Cahill's gifted cello playing calls the creatures of Faerie to him. As a boy, his Irish grandmother crafts him a charm to keep the fair folk at bay--but when it finally fails, Jeremy must face the terrifying power of Faerie...alone.
 
GUINEVERE'S GIFT-- Guinevere Gaunt (Gwen to her friends) is one of the last humans to carry the blood of the old bards. Half-trained and barely making a living playing the Celtic harp, she can't afford to turn down her latest wedding gig, even though it means returning to the treacherous Fae Realm.
 
ICE IN D MINOR--On a near-future Earth, an intrepid composer uses music in a final effort to save our world...
