A former assistant professor of English in the picturesque town of Freiburg on the edge of the Black Forest, Ruth Nestvold has given up theory for imagination. The university career has been replaced by a small software localization business, and the Black Forest by the parrots of Bad Cannstatt, where she lives with her fantasy, her family, her books and no cats in a house with a turret. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous markets, including Asimov's, F&SF, Baen's Universe, Strange Horizons, Scifiction, and Gardner Dozois's Year's Best Science Fiction. Her fiction has been nominated for the Nebula, Tiptree, and Sturgeon Awards. In 2007, the Italian translation of her novella "Looking Through Lace" won the "Premio Italia" award for best international work. Her novel Flamme und Harfe appeared in translation with the German imprint of Random House, Penhaligon, in 2009 and has since been translated into Dutch and Italian.

on Jan. 11, 2018 :
A collection of four excellent fantasy stories! All of the stories are well written and very good, but the first and fourth are really excellent.
The collection takes its title from the first story in the collection: Dragon Time. The story was based on a novel concept and is well executed. I would liked to have seen just a little more time spent on the conclusion, but I still loved it. (Note: While all of the stories in this book are fantasy, this is the only one with dragons.)
The fourth story, Princes and Priscilla, was a bit melancholy, but perfectly logical. This is the one that will remain with me the longest. Probably.
