A magical collection of stories new and old spanning across all of Anne Bishop’s most beloved fantasy worlds.

Here, together for the first time, the shorter works of New York Times bestselling fantasy author Anne Bishop are included in one dazzling volume.

A master of bringing fantasy worlds to life, this collection showcases Bishop’s impressive range, from rarities of her earliest writing to the Realms of the Blood, from darker fairytale retellings to the Landscapes of Ephemera, and from standalone stories of space exploration and fantastical creatures to the contemporary fantasy terrain of the World of the Others.

Includes previously published and unpublished tales, as well as two brand-new stories, written especially for this collection: “Friends and Corpses,” a murder mystery in which the corpse has some decidedly unusual qualities, and “Home for the Howlidays,” a heartwarming return to the Blood Prophet Meg Corbyn and the shapeshifting Simon Wolfgard from The Others.
New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop is a winner of the William L. Crawford Memorial Fantasy Award, presented by the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts, for The Black Jewels Trilogy. She is also the author of the Ephemera series, the Tir Alainn trilogy, the Novels of the Others, and the World of the Others novels—including Crowbones and Wild Country. She lives in upstate New York.

"While Bishop includes a few stories set in the world of her beloved series . . . readers can also expect a wide variety of new worlds that still contain the familiar themes of feminine power and justice. . . . Recommended for fans who are curious about Bishop's journey as a writer and are interested in reading about the inspiration and motivation behind her stories."—Library Journal

"Bishop has such a gift for deftly drawing the reader into her fantastical worlds, and there is something to delight readers of many preferences. . . . The tough part for the reader will be how to choose which delicious tale to dive into first."—Fresh Fiction

"The Lady in Glass and Other Stories was a delight to read. Some entries are short and quick, some are longer, but all were well done and worth the time. As someone who has only read one of Anne Bishop's stories before, I was only casually aware of her work. Now though, well, excuse me while I go add some books to my TBR list."—Game Vortex
