The Crown of Stars
"A gripping and enthralling
fantasy epic." -- The Times (of London)
Into the midst of these troubles walk three young people: Sanglant, Liath, and Alain.
Sanglant is a prince, bastard son of King Henry. Born and bred to become captain of the elite cavalry -- the King's Dragons -- and to give his life to protect his father's kingdom, he cannot know the terrible fate that awaits him.
Liath is the child of sorcerers, trained as a mathematici, one who knows the secrets of the stars. But she and her father have been running for their lives for the past eight years, and soon that which hunts them is going to catch up.
Alain is a fosterling, seeking the truth of his parentage. Only when he accepts his destiny will he learn the truth.

"A Simple Act of Kindness"
Written for The Shimmering Door, Katharine Kerr, ed. See Short Fiction. Elliott says:
I'm posting this in full because it has now become a curiosity. Written when I was still working on King's Dragon (which was then titled Dragon's Heart), I thought this episode would be part of the third volume of the series, The Burning Stone. Not only was I wrong (if it were to have been put in one of the books, it would be in volume four, Child of Flame), but in the intervening time the story changed so radically that this is now an alternate history of the actual Crown of Stars story!
