For now Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispensing Herald's justice throughout the land. But in this realm beset by dangerous unrest, enforcing her rulings would require all the courage and skill Talia could command - for if she misused her own special powers, both she and Valdemar would pay the price!"; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

The focus seems to be Deke Kestrel, the son of Di's old ghost-hunting buddy. There's nothing unusual about Deke - except that his long-dormant occult power is finally stirring…and Something wants that power. Wants it desperately enough to kill. Diana Tregarde, Guardian and practicing witch, sworn to defend the innocent, cannot let that happen."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

6 Lackey, Mercedes; Sherman, Josepha Lammas Night
New York Baen Books 1996 0671877135 / 9780671877132 Mass Market Paperback Very Good+ 
Illustrated by Poyser, Victoria [cover]

Minor edgewear, small crease at one corner. A bright, attractive copy.

"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."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall

A Cinderella story set in post-World War I England for grown-up science fiction and fantasy fans with the inimitable twists and turns that Mercedes Lackey's readers have come to expect.
"Eleanor Robinson's life had fallen apart. She had spent years trying to convince Papa to send her to Oxford; her only wish to study great literature at Oxford's new women's college. It hadn't mattered that they didn't grant degrees to women - she would be satisfied just to immerse herself in her studies at that venerable institution. And she had been accepted! But then the Great War had broken out, and Father had volunteered, leaving her alone with a woman she barely knew. For her father had remarried just before leaving for the front, and now Eleanor felt like a stranger in her own home, an unwelcome presence. "
"Then the letter had come - the letter that told of her father's death in the trenches. And just when Eleanor Robinson thought tings couldn't get any worse, her life took an even more bizarre turn. Dragged to the hearth by her stepmother Alison and her solicitor, Eleanor was forced to endure a painful and frightening ritual - a ritual during which the smallest finger of her left hand was severed and buried beneath a hearthstone. For her stepmother was an Elemental Master of Earth, but not just an ordinary Master - a Master who practiced the darker blood-fueled arts. Alison had bound Eleanor to the hearth with a spell that prevented her from leaving the environs of her home, caused her to fade from people's memories, and made her into a virtual slave."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
