"First there was the song. Several years back, Mercedes Lackey wrote "Lammas Night", a spooky, supernatural ballad that ended with the wizard protagonist facing a very perilous choice that was left to the listener to decide. Then came the birthday present that wasn't. Bill Jahnel and friends put together a collection of endings for the song, intending to offer it as a tribute to Mercedes, known to her friends as "Misty." However, the best laid plans often do not come off as intended. The project was shelved for a time, then offered to Baen Books for possible publication. Unfortunately, while this project, in its original form, made a lovely tribute and Misty was quite touched, it was felt that a book made up strictly of endings to a song would have made for rather limited reading. And so the book now known as Lammas Night was born. What you hold in your hands is an all-new collection of fantasy stories by some of the brightest stars in the field. Each was given a copy of "Lammas Night" and was told to use it as a springboard for his or her imagination. The only restriction was that their stories must show some tie-in to the original song. What resulted is a wild range of stories, some traditional, some outright bizarre. Lammas Night is both a tribute to a song and to Misty herself. It is also a chance for readers to enter new worlds of fantasy and see the creative imagination at work."; 6" - 7" Tall
