In March 1987, Mercedes Lackey, a young author from Oklahoma, published her first novel, Arrows of the Queen. No one could have envisioned that this modest book about a magical land called Valdemar would be the beginning of a fantasy masterwork series that would span decades and include more than two dozen titles.

Now the voices of other authors add their own special touches to the ancient land where HeraldsChosen” from all walks of life by magical horse-like Companions patrol their ancient kingdom, dispensing justice, facing adversaries, and protecting their monarch and country from whatever threatens. Trained rigorously by the Herald’s Collegium, these special protectors each have extraordinary Gifts: Mindspeaking, FarSeeing, FarSpeaking, Empathy, FireStarting and ForeSeeing, and are bonded for life with their mysterious Companions. Travel with these astounding adventurers in sixteen original stories.

Originally published by DAW (Daw Book Collectors No. 1764), the anthology includes the following stories:

  • "The Whitest Lie" by Stephanie D. Shaver
  • "Old Loom, New Tapestry" by Dale A. Dermatis
  • "The Barest Gift" by Brenda Cooper
  • "Consequences Unforeseen" by Elizabeth A. Vaughan
