These 11 tales, set in the land of Mithgar, take place at an inn called the One-Eyed Crow. Whether offering whimsical "proof" for the existence of giants or relating a somber tale of war's false glory, the author of The Eye of the Hunter (LJ 9/15/92) displays a genuine flair for pacing, characters, and drama-all essential to the storyteller's art. A good choice for most fantasy collections.

McKiernan here uses his increasingly popular world of Mithgar as a background for 11 tales told in an inn called the One-Eyed Crow by a bunch of storytellers gathered to practice their art. Particularly appealing are "The Thornwalker and the Wolf," "The Dammsel," and "The Ruffian and the Giant." As in the rest of his creations, McKiernan employs classic fantasy elements, using them better in each new work. He also reveals an unexpected deftness at writing short fantasy stories, which is more than can be said of a good many of his colleagues and may help him avoid turning good short stories into less than good novels as the years roll on. Any McKiernan fan is bound to ask for and be pleased by this one. Fantasy collections, proceed accordingly.
