From a sheriff embroiled in a mystery at the Arizona Renaissance Faire, to a homesick beer-drinking alien, to an aging king and a newly risen zombie, this volume features twenty-one tales that will intrigue, humor, an send a few shivers. The author of a hundred books in the fantasy, science-fiction, mystery, and western genres, Vardeman takes you from the edge of death, to a UFO-hunted desert, to fantasy worlds rich with god-fire and mysticism. This collection is filled with some of his favorite gems, stretching from three decades past to the present.
Robert Vardeman is a masterful storyteller whose depth of skill is matched only by the breadth of subjects he has written about. Working in any genre, he can take the slimmest sliver of an idea and work it up into a story that will amaze and thrill readers. Few writers have so successfully explored such a wide range of subjects and genres, and none with the deft hand and sharp skill which Robert E. Vardeman displays so effortlessly. --Michael Stackpole, New York Times bestselling author
