This book has 6 breathtaking tales set in the bestselling world of "The Innkeeper's Song".
All those who were enthralled by Peter S. Beagle's highly acclaimed novel, 'The Innkeeper's Song', will revel in the prospect of re-entering its strange, haunting world in this collection of stories, each marked by that special brand of magic that has earned the author comparison with Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Moving from one teller of tales to another, Beagle describes the last, tragic sacrifice of the most celebrated bard of all time, the adventures of a peasant magician whose skills exceeded his own humble ambitions, the fate of a group of travelling players who make the mistake of dabbling in politics. He tells of the perilous escapade of two ageing mercenaries, the story of a young girl and Singing Fish, and records the poignant legacy of the dying race of giants. Told with humour, subtlety and infinite skill, these spellbinding stories will captivate all readers, whether they are seasoned Beagle fans or come to him for the first time.
