Fans of exquisite prose and ethereal fantasy will need to own this.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Bestselling author Patricia A. McKillip (THE FORGOTTEN BEASTS OF ELD) is one of the most lyrical writers gracing the fantasy genre. With the debut of her newest work, DREAMS OF DISTANT SHORES is a true ode to her many talents. Within these pages you will find a youthful artist possessed by both his painting and his muse and seductive travelers from the sea enrapturing distant lovers. The statue of a mermaid comes suddenly to life, and two friends are transfixed by a haunted estate.
McKillip (WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD) once more enchants with this volume, which fantasy readers will devour as they are transported into multiple realities.”
Fans of McKillip’s ethereal fiction will find much to delight them; those lucky enough to be discovering her work will find much to enchant them.
“I love Patricia McKillip’s novels, but even more, I am passionate about her brilliant short stories—those coruscating jewels that are both remarkable for their language, their power, their wit, and their depth. She writes pure fantasy and historical fantasy with equal ease. More, more please.”
–Jane Yolen, author of THE EMERALD CIRCUS, BRIAR ROSE, SISTER LIGHT, SISTER DARK
