Publisher Comments:

Mercedes Lackey has, in a few short years, soared to the peak of the fantasy field, and her thousands of enthusiastic leaders clamor for more and more. Now comes a volume demonstrating the wide range of her talent, running the gamut from her beloved Bardic fantasies to urban fantasy set in the modern world; from science fiction adventure to chilling horror. And throughout Fiddler Fair, Lackey's sheer storytelling skill will hold the reader spellbound. Learn what happens when animal rights fanatics try to "liberate" genetically reconstructed dinosaurs. Follow Lawrence of Arabia into the desert to meet a power beyond human comprehension; and be with King Arthur, reborn into the present day, when he again gains possession of Excalibur. And, in a very weird encounter of the most bizarre kind, learn why an alien from a UFO took an unusual interest in a battered Chevy pickup.

"Fiddler Fair" is a feast for the multitudes of Lackey fans everywhere — and for new readers, a powerful introduction to the most significant new fantasy writer of the decade.

Synopsis:

There are elves out there.

And more are coming. But even elves need money to survive in the "real" world. The good elves, intrigued by the thrills of stock car racing, are manufacturing new, light-weight engines (with, incidentally, very little "cold" iron); the bad elves run a kiddie-porn and snuff-film ring, with occasional forays into drugs.

Ranged on the other side of all that's good --

-- Keighvin: elf lord with a problem, and the victim of a vendetta.

-- Tannim: a human mage with a taste for fast cars and loud music.

-- Sam Kelly: mild-mannered retired engineer with an Irish temper.

-- Ross Canfield: a good old Southern boy who just happens to be dead.

The people trapped in between: three runaways. Good kids already in serious trouble and about to get into more. Unwitting pawns in a deadly game, they will either be saved — or led into a fate worse than death....

Synopsis:

Book one of a new urban fantasy series centered on hot cars, fast elves, and rock-n-roll. Good elves are intrigued by stock car racing, and bad elves run kiddie-porn and drug rings. Trapped in between are three runaways who are in serious trouble and about to get into more--unwitting pawns in a deadly game between good and evil.

Part of a series about elves, mages and things that go bump in the night, this episode adds ghosts who need to learn their way around before taking their next step. I love the ordinary setting with extraordinary events. I'm glad I already have the next episode on my shelf.
