With the unique touch of a master, Peter S. Beagle has crafted this collection of six amazing novellas set in the same fantastic world as his bestselling classic The Innkeeper’s Song. Brimming with all the stylistic majesty and dazzling inventiveness that have earned him comparisons to J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, Giant Bones brings to life characters from the author’s previous works as well as new heroes with their own stories to tell.
“Lal and Soukyan” follows the last perilous escapade of a legendary mercenary duo now in their twilight years, while “The Last Song of Sirit Byar” tells the tragic truth of the kingdom’s most celebrated bard. In “Giant Bones”, a family legend takes on new meaning for an impressionable child, and the troupe of performers in “The Tragical Historie of the Jiril’s Players” find themselves trapped in a dangerous world of royal intrigue. With these and two other extraordinary tales, Peter S. Beagle draws us into his wondrous and magical world.
