The range of tone, theme, style, and content reflected in this generous volume is nothing short of amazing. The title story is a tale within a tale of dragons and knights and is notable for its wit and verbal inventiveness. 'The Storm Door' uses The Tibetan Book of the Dead to forge a singular new approach to the traditional zombie story. 'The Terrible Conflagration at the Quiller's Mint' offers a brief, independent glimpse into the background of Williams's Shadowmarch series. 'Ants' provides an ironic account of what can happen when a marriage goes irrevocably wrong.
