Once upon a time, we were all children and short stories taught us how to read fiction. And in the hands of a true storyteller, they can still take us back to the very heart of why we love to read.
Katherine V. Forrest is one of those true storytellers.
This collection of her short stories showcases the brilliance of her gift, displaying the scope of her imagination and the range of her voice. From the erotic speculation of “O Captain, My Captain” to the incisive investigation of homicide detective Kate Delafield; from moral dilemma to chilling horror; from peril to passion, Forrest takes us across the vivid landscapes of her remarkable mind. A writer who has inspired both writers and readers, Forrest demonstrates her breathtaking versatility.
Dreams and Swords is not only the perfect introduction to her work—it’s also a delicious treat for her legions of fans.
So sit back and enjoy the ride.
