Synopsis: A collection of short science fiction tales by the Hugo and Nebula Award winner features a tale of an author who is visited by the characters from his novel and a little girl whose best friend is a dragon made of ice. Reprint.

From Publishers Weekly: Martin has a loyal following for his ironic voice and his colorful imagination. This new collection, gathering stories from 14 years, puts that inventiveness at the service of a romantic and sentimental vision. In one of the earliest pieces, "With Morning Comes Mistfall," the allure of the mysterious, myth-laden Wraithworld vanishes with scientific scrutiny. The noble "Ice Dragon" gives its life to save the little girl who loves it. In the title story a novelist wallows in self pity for having devoted more time to his fictional creations than to his family. A time travel/revenge-of-the-nerd yarn, "Unsound Variations," somewhat escapes the pattern, but this remains overall a weak collection.
