Summary

Few authors have achieved such renown as World Fantasy Life Achievement honoree and Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton. With the love of readers and the praise of critics, Norton’s books have sold millions of copies worldwide.This collection of thirteen captivating short stories and novellas samples the wide range of Nebula Grand Master Norton’s work. The first six stories, set in the Witch World universe, depict mostly female protagonists coping with the aftermath of wars made even more devastating by the deployment of magic. “Toads of Grimmerdale” and “Changeling” recount the travails of Hertha, a noblewoman who is cast out into “drifts of ice-crusted snow” by her brother after she refuses to abort the fetus of a rapist. “Spider Silk” is what blind, former slave Dairine is taught to weave by male-hating giant arachnids. In the title novella, an Esper fleeing a lynch mob is carried into another world, where his kind rules—but even there he is different and must fight for survival. A dreamer who creates worlds for others finds her work, herself, and her client in grave danger in “Toys of Tamisan.” “Mousetrap,” the earliest story here, envisions a not-too-distant future in which mankind explores Mars but human nature remains the same.

    Larry is a divorced dad who desperately wants to be closer to his bratty five-year-old daughter Madison, and he thinks he's found the answer to his problems when he buys a magic ring he can use to transform into Madison's identical twin. Larry and Madison have lots of fun playing together as kids, but things go horribly wrong when Madison gets a hold of the ring, turns herself into a grown-up Larry and refuses to give the ring back. Now Larry's daughter is his daddy... and he's her little girl! 
     
    With every passing moment Larry finds himself acting more like a child, his manhood slipping away, while Madison is acting more and more like a grown-up. He keeps begging Madison to change them back, but she's having too much fun teasing him and making him go to ballet class. Will Larry be able to get back the ring before it's too late, or will he be stuck starting life over as a pretty little five-year-old girl? 
     
    This darkly comic fantasy of transgender age regression is the latest novella from Susan Donym, author of the books Werechild: The Man Who Became a Little Girl and He Became a Farmgirl.
