Overview

Harald Stonearm, usurper of the throne in the Province of Swallows,

loves nothing more than a good story. So, in the seventh year of his

reign, he sets aside the summer for a storytelling contest.

Competitors come from all over the kingdom to take a seat in

Gravenwall Castle's amphitheater. Harald's patience is short, however,

and he dismisses one storyteller after another.

All that changes with the arrival of a mysterious foreigner, a young

traveler dressed as a holy man who carries the weapons of a soldier. A

man with many names, now called Dogman, because of the huge Bear

Dog at his side.

As the foreigner's tale unfolds, the crowd of listeners steadily grows,

carried along by a story of recklessness, great voyages, strange

encounters and magic, unaware that it all leads to two startling

conclusions.

There is much more to the tale than the foreigner is telling.
