Description: "Before and Beyond is a collection of stories by the supreme master of fantasy Patrick Welch. What can you expect to find within this volume? I won't even try to describe it. Nothing I say can prepare you for Patrick Welch. Even a man of words like me, can scarcely think of the appropriate adjectives to heap upon him. And being the modest fellow he is, it's unlikely that he'd do more than blush and turn away in any case. At least on one level, I truly envy some of the people reading this intro. Those of you that have yet to experience your first Patrick Welch story ... because you have no idea of what's in store for you. Those of you that have read him, know exactly what I'm talking about."--Steve Lazarowitz

Ahlbhenzer hid behind the outcropping of rock and watched as the knight warily approached. The man looked so proud and uncomfortable in his metal suit, the sun reflecting brightly off its surface and eliminating any possible element of surprise. Ahlbhenzer wondered briefly if the man was suffering as much from the heat and sun as he was, then decided it must be worse for his prey. Ahlbhenzer, after all, wasn't walking around in an oven. His claws drummed nervously on the boulder, his tail stirred up dust behind him. The magician's orders were clear: stop all from approaching my castle.
