About the Book

Original Publication Date: January 03, 1995

Setting: Richmond, Ichidian Universe(SF), Nashville, Middle Ages.

This is the anthology that compiles all of the short stories Sherri wrote for Berkley. It contains:

Dragonswan Scholar Channon MacRea has spent years studying the legendary Dragon Tapestry, devoting days and nights to deciphering the impenetrable Old English symbolism. Then one evening, Sebastian appears. He claims to hold the key to solving the tapestry’s mysteries… He also claims to be a dragon-slayer trapped between two worlds.

For Channon there’s only one way to finally uncover the secrets of the intricate embroidery-by following this stranger into a fantastic alternate world of magic, danger, and adventure.

The Story Behind The Story

These three stories all appeared in other anthologies with other great writers. At fan demand, Berkley pulled them into one anthology.

Fire & Ice (The League), was originally written as a full novel. One day I hope to go back and lengthen it.

Dragonswan was written not long after I'd handed in Fantasy Lover.

Knightly Dreams is a story I conceived on the way back from New Orleans. It's how I see the publishing world and what happens to characters when a writer gives up and stops writing them. It's a quirky little piece that relates to nothing else I've written.

Hear it from the Fans

Loved Andron and Livia's story!! I wanted to ask if Thia's story will be told. It's was explained that the family hasn't seen or heard from her since she took off with someone her father didn't approve of. Love her character in the Nemesis Raising series. Would like to know what happened.

    If she doesn't die is always Sherri's answer.

In Fire & Ice, it states that Nykrian is now Emperor of both Triosan and Andaria. Since Andarions live much longer than humans, will we ever find out what happened to Nyk's mother?

    Yes, but keep in mind that she'd be around 100 human years in age at the time those books take place.

Is this book ever going to be available in audible format? I've read it, but I love to listen to your books while I work, and I would to have the full series and to have this one would be awesome! I have an idea of what the characters would sound like, but ....

Okay Im going to say this as calmly as I can so I want to know where on this planet can I find Fire and Ice because I'm going crazy knowing that I'm reading out of order
