Description

The Creator Of Thomas Covenant Adds Eight New Wonders To The World.
In his first collection of short fiction, the bestselling author of White Gold Wielder presents eight superb stories, including "Gilden-Fire, " the famous "outtake" from Illearth War, and two brand new novellas written especially for this edition. Enter a world of mystics and unicorns, angels and kings -- all realized with the same dazzling style and imagination that has made Stephen R. Donaldson a modern master of the fantasy genre.
Daughter of Regals is a fantasy novella concerning a unique royal line and an unusual conception of magic.
The Conqueror Worm is a deliciously creepy "horror" piece in which havoc is wreaked by one lowly centipede.
Ser Visal's Tale begins as a simple story told over several flagons of wine at the local inn, this novella ends with a surprising twist.
Gilden-Fire is the famous chapter about Korik of the Bloodguard and his mission to Seareach that was part of the original manuscript of The Illearth War, but omitted from the published version.

Review quote

"Stephen R. Donaldson demonstrates new breadth and range in his first book of short stories...There is no doubt that Donaldson remains the reigning master of epic fantasy."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"He has a versatility that few had previously guessed...[The] stories are fresh, original, and, in a couple of cases, simply superb....exciting fare for Donaldson fans and the uninitiated alike."--Denver Rocky Mountain News



"Donaldson proves himself at home in a surprising number of story genres...Of those stories that are fantasies, 'The Lady in White' and 'Ser Visal's Tale' are exceptional...Overall, Daughter of Regals is a good collection."--Columbus Dispatch



"The best tales here (both written for this collection) are the title story, a real good twist on magical power achieved at the proper time and place, and 'Ser Visal's Tale, ' on betrayal and ultimate triumph...an interesting overview on Donaldson's style and the turnings of his imagination."--Los Angeles Times
