A Breviary of Fire

(A book in the Collected Short Fiction of Marie Brennan series)
A collection of stories by

“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.”

The words of composer Gustav Mahler animate this collection of sixteen tales from award-winning author Marie Brennan, inspired by mythological and folkloric traditions around the world. Here you will find flames of revenge, immortality, and grace, as a valkyrie seeks peace, a queen weaves and unweaves her own fate, and a goddess vanishes from mortal memory — but never from the page.
