Open this book at your own risk–of a spooky good read.
Edited by Sherwood Smith
The pleasure of your company is requested.
Graceful feet tracing courtly steps.
Eyes in jeweled masks meeting across a room of twirling dancers.
Gloved hands touching fleetingly–or gripping swords…
Anything can happen at a ball.
You are invited to enjoy stories of fancy and fantasy from thirteen authors, framed in the splendor and elegance of a ballroom. Be it at a house party for diplomats and thieves, or Almacks in a side-universe in which the Patronesses have magic, or a medieval festival just after the plague years …
Prepare to be swept into the enchantment of the dance!
