HONOR AMONG MEN AND THE HUNTING OF HOUNDS.
A short story from the series The Hounds of Annwn.
When George Talbot Traherne goes night hunting for fox in Virginia, he learns about unworthy men from the old-timers drinking moonshine around the fire and makes his own choices.
Who could have anticipated that the same impulse that won him his old bluetick coonhound would lead him to his new wife and the hounds of Annwn? Every choice has a cost, he realizes, but never a regret.
This short story takes place between the events in To Carry the Horn and The Ways of Winter.
