With the help of fine folks over at GOODREADS, we’re giving away an advance reading copy of the World Fantasy Award winner Patricia A. McKillip’s new collection of lyrical tales DREAMS OF DISTANT SHORES.
Featuring three brand-new stories and an original introduction by Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn.
“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 Briar Rose, Sister Emily’s Lightship, Devil’s Arithmetic, Sister Light/Sister Dark
Bestselling author Patricia A. McKillip (The Riddle-Master of Hed) 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.
“Ever since finding and loving The Riddlemaster of Hed many years ago, I have read everything Patricia McKillip has written. You should too. Start with this book!”
—Garth Nix, author of Clarion: The Lost Abhorsen and The Old Kingdom series
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.
