Synopsis of Harrowing the Dragon

Now, for the first time, Patricia A. McKillip presents a Book of previously uncollected short stories-full of beautiful dragons, rueful princesses, and handsome bards, and written in the gorgeous, and often surprisingly funny, prose she is known for. This is her world, wrapped up in the finery of fairy tales.
