In March 1987, a young author from Oklahoma published her first novel, "Arrows of the Queen." This modest book about a magical land called Valdemar was the beginning of a fantasy masterwork series that would span decades and include more than two dozen titles. Now readers can travel to the world of Valdemar with Tanya Huff, Mickey Zucker Reichert, Fiona Patton, Rosemary Edghill, Judith Tarr, and others in these original stories, including an all-new novella from Mercedes Lackey.
Under the Vale is the the 7th anthology collection of short stories by a wide variety of authors. All of the stories are set within the Valdemar world created by Mercedes Lackey. The stories include old characters as well as new, and some of the stories from mini-series with other stories within the anthologies. Are they necessary for the understanding of the world? No, but they are a fun, episodic addition.
