Scarborough Fair and Other Stories includes ten works by the author of the Nebula Award-winning The Healer's War and many other novels. In "Final Vows," Mu Mao the Magnificent, the feline bodhisattva from Scarborough's novel Last Refuge, helps guide a reincarnated cat in solving the mystery of his own betrayal and murder. "Whirlwinds" takes place on the Dine Trail of Tears, when the US military force-marched ninety-five hundred Navajo people from their ancient, sacred homeland to the barren Bosque Redondo area surrounding New Mexico's Fort Sumner. A coveted princess packs on pounds when a disgruntled suitor casts an evil spell on her in "Worse Than the Curse." How is a plump princess to cope? And "Long Time Coming Home," cowritten with Scarborough's fellow Vietnam veteran Rick Reaser, is a story of the battles and ghosts many vets face after returning from the war. These and other stories capably demonstrate Scarborough's breadth of skill.
