Stonefather by Orson Scott Card

Stonefather by Orson Scott Card is a novella and prelude to a forthcoming fantasy saga: Mithermages. I found it enjoyable and reminiscent of his previous fantasy work especially the Alvin Maker series. I don't read hardly any fantasy, other than that by Orson Scott Card.

Another recent publication (2008), Keeper of Dreams, collects 22 short stories and novellas by Orson Scott Card, not found in Maps in a Mirror:

The Elephants of Poznan
Geriatric Ward
Heal Thyself
Space Boy
Homeless in Hell
In the Dragon's House
Inventing Lovers on the Phone
Keeper of Lost Dreams
50 WPM
Feed the Baby of Love
Grinning Man
The Yazoo Queen
Christmas at Helaman's House
God Plays Fair Once Too Often
Worthy to Be One of Us

Both are well work reading in my opinion.
