Orsinia - a land of medieval forests, stonewalled cities, and railways reaching into the mountains where the old gods dwell. A country where life is harsh, dreams are gentle, and people feel torn by powerful forces and fight to remain whole. The best of the stories in Orsinian Tales have something of this quality: a medieval lord makes a compromise with the old religion to save his pregnant wife; in the early seventeenth century, a warlord breaks his heart to reconcile his military goal with his respect for the independence of the woman who turned him down; a visiting impresario acknowledges the frustrated genius of a local music master in a depressing industrial town.
