COLORED GLASSES highlights the collection.
“She was part cormorant, the witch sensed, and part human, with some very old regional powers tossed into the mix. Like the witch herself, she’d been around a long time, and had many connections, not all of them innocent or unambiguous.”

John O’Neill of BLACK GATE profiles the book.
A new collection by
Patricia A. McKillip is a major event. In the first four decades of
her very accomplished career she released a scant two short story collections: THE THROME OF THE ERRIL OF SHERILL (1984) and HARROWING
THE DRAGON (2005). Taychon Publications has doubled that number just
in the last four years, starting with WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD
(2012), and now DREAMS OF DISTANT SHORES.
