Dreams of Distant Shores

Dreams of Distant Shores by Patricia A. McKillip

A collection of her stories.  The style is as wonderful as always, but the stories themselves were uneven.  There's the novella Something Rich and Strange, about a couple and the sea creatures that come to them, and "The Gorgon in the Cupboard" about an artist and a model, which were the best.
