(From the publisher):
Now, for the first time, Patricia A. McKillip presents a book of previously uncollected short stories-full of beautiful dragons, rueful princesses, and handsome bards, and written in the gorgeous, and often surprisingly funny, prose she is known for. This is her world, wrapped up in the finery of fairy tales.
A dragon has held an island in never-ending winter, until a man comes to break its fierce embrace - only to learn the true meaning of wisdom - in "The Harrowing of the Dragon of Hoarsbreath." The "Lady of the Skulls" lures men with what's most precious to them - and then kills them with it. "Star-Crossed" portrays the investigation into the deaths of Romeo and Juliet - and illustrates how little the world tolerates true love.
