Excerpt: The Fey of Cloudmoor by Terry Brooks

Multiverse edited by Greg Bear & Gardner Dozois is available for order now on Subterranean Press and The Signed Page!

It is an anthology celebrating the life’s work of science fiction grandmaster Poul Anderson. Anderson has had an amazing influence on many of today’s writers and some of those writers were invited by Greg Bear and Gardner Dozois to write additional stories set in the universes that Anderson created.

Terry has always been a Poul Anderson fan and he jumped at the chance to write a sequel to the Anderson story The Queen of Air and Darkness. After all, the story won the Hugo Award for Best Novella and the Locus Award for Best Short Story in 1972, and the Nebula Award for Best Novelette in 1971. It is a beautifully written story, one that left a large impression on Terry when he read it even as he wrote The Sword of Shannara.

The story that Terry contributed to Multiverse? The Fey of Cloudmoor!
