This is a collection of short stories written over the years between 91 and 2000 and published in magazines ranging from the short-lived Dark Regions to such staples of the field as Analog and Weird Tales. The stories themselves are nothing if not eclectic. In Sarah's worlds, you'll meet people from all walks of life. You'll meet a common whore with no past and a powerful emperor whose past follows him like a shadow. You'll go into battle with an ordinary soldier and have a quiet dinner with the most extraordinary poet that graced the Earth. A mysterious dragon will soar overhead and a brooding vampire will stalk you in a dark tavern. A handsome alien will seduce you and a marauding band of ruthless Mongols will change the world as you know it. You'll believe in fairies again and you'll find comfort in a ghost. One king will save you, but you'll be powerless to save another. In these stories you'll meet the magic art of the storyteller.
