Prickle Moon is a collection of short fiction. It contains eleven previously published stores and five new ones. Included are the Sevenwaters novella, ’Twixt Firelight and Water', the epic Nordic story, 'Otherling', and 'In Coed Celyddon', a tale of the young man who would one day become King Arthur.
The title story, especially written for the collection, concerns an old Scottish wise woman facing an impossible moral dilemma.
