MOONLIGHT AND VINES

In January 1999 Tor Books published Moonlight and Vines. Copies went on sale in the States in December 1998; in Canada, H.B. Fenn began distributing copies in March 1999. The cover is a photo collage by the inimitable Terri Windling, who also provided the lovely covers for the two previous collections. The model is Guarina Lopez, a young woman that MaryAnn and I had the pleasure of meeting the last time we visited with Terri in Tucson, AZ. The photograph dates back a few years ago to when Guarina and her father Fileberto were visiting with Terri in her cottage in Chagford, England.
