Water: Tales of Elemental Spirits
by Robin McKinley & Peter Dickinson
Ace, 2003 , ISBN 0-441-01056-3
A book review by Elisabeth Carey
This is a collection of short stories, some by Dickinson and some by McKinley, all involving water spirits in one form or another. One of McKinley's is another Damar story (The Blue Sword, The Hero and the Crown). Several of them, by both writers, involved merpeople in what's at least somewhat a shared world. Overall, I find McKinley's characters more likable and enjoyable to spend time with, but all the stories are entertaining.
