"A story by Tanith Lee unveils a voice alone, a true Scheherazade, someone with a distinctive vision of the world and who explored that world, or those worlds to be accurate, with a highly perceptive and mindful set of eyes."

From the introduction, 'An Awareness of Worlds', by Mike Ashley

This anthology of twenty-eight tales comprises all the short stories by Tanith Lee that were published in the seminal magazine Weird Tales during her lifetime. Some of them are previously uncollected, and appeared in print only in the magazine, so will be new to many of Tanith's fans.

Tanith Lee's highly-respected and influential work spanned every genre, and this sumptuous collection demonstrates the range of her versatility. From the dark high fantasy of 'The Sombrus Tower', through the Arthurian-influenced 'The Kingdoms of the Air', the achingly beautiful 'Stars Above, Stars Below' of a science-fantasy Mars, the sinister retelling of a fairy tale in 'When the Clock Strikes', the real-world mysteries of 'The Unrequited Glove' and 'Arthur's Lion', and the almost whimsical steampunk of 'The Persecution Machine', The Weird Tales of Tanith Lee showcases the myriad styles of the writer rightly known as the High Priestess of Fantasy.
