Four stories have only been published previously in magazines and
other limited distribution venues. One story, “Absent Friends”, is
original to this collection. The book offers both an introduction to the
world of Einarinn for new readers as well as insights and sidelights
for established fans.
Artwork originally commissioned from some of Britain’s finest
illustrators and comics artists to go with The Wedding Gift story
provide black and white character illustrations throughout the ebook and
the coloured portrait of Livak for the cover.
