New Release -- Choices, a Valdemar Anthology

A new anthology called Choices just dropped recently. It's another collection of short stories set in the world of Valdemar, created by Mercedes Lackey. This is the fourth Valdemar anthology I've had a story in, and they're always fun to write for.

For this book, I have a story about a new character. Herald Josswyn and his Companion Dashell are riding circuit and stop in the Tolm Valley, where lives an insular community governed by Baron Tolm. They find that the old Baron has died recently, and the new Baron is determined to enforce the very letter of the law, even if it leaves some of his folk in dire poverty. Herald Joss is sworn to uphold the law, but sometimes the strongest law has a postern gate through it, if you know where to look.
