Author: Mercedes Lackey
In March 1987, Mercedes Lackey, a young author from Oklahoma, published her first novel, Arrows of the Queen. No one could have envisioned that this modest book would be the beginning of a fantasy career that would span decades and more than a hundred novels, with no signs of slowing yet. And among Ms. Lackey's many novels, few are as critically-acclaimed and beloved as those of the Elemental Masters. The novels in this series are loosely based on classic fairy tales, and take place in a fantasy version of turn-of-the-century London, where magic is real and Elemental Masters control the powers of Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Now the voices of other authors join Mercedes Lackey to add their own special touches to this delightful alternate history, in a world where magic is always just around the corner...

Author: Jerome Beaty
Category: Literary Criticism
Examining both literary historical contexts and those produced within the structure of the narrative itself, Beaty (English, Emory U.) provides a rigorous reading of the novel, its relationship with numerous, often obscure, works from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and an interrogation of the reading process.
