The first-ever collection of short fantasy fiction from the award-winning author of the Thomas Covenant trilogies. Stephen Donaldson is one of the undisputed masters of modern fantasy, and his two award-winning Thomas Covenant trilogies and the Mordant's Need series are universally recognised as classics of their kind. Daughter of Regals, his first short-story collection, was originally published in 1984 and contains eight superb stories -- including 'Gilden-Fire', the famous out-take from The Illearth War (volume II of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant). Now, Daughter of Regals is being repackaged and reissued to accompany Voyager's publication of Reave the Just, Stephen Donaldson's stunning new collection of short stories -- his first work of mainstream fantasy for more than ten years. Includes the following stories: Daughter of Regals / Gilden-Fire / Mythological Beast / The Lady in White / Animal Lover / Unworthy of the Angel / The Conqueror Worm / Ser Visal's Tale

Stephen Donaldson was born in 1947 in Cleveland, Ohio. Between the ages of three and sixteen he lived in India, where his father, an orthopaedic surgeon, worked with lepers. It was after hearing one of his father's speeches on leprosy that he conceived the character of Thomas Covenant. He has recently completed the bestselling Gap series, a five-volume sf epic that has been hailed as 'the best work of his career'.Review:
'If there is any justice in the world, Stephen Donaldson will earn the right to stand shoulder to shoulder with Tolkien.' Time Out 'The most individual of the Tolkien successors.' Guardian
