Years ago, Beagle, an avid songwriter, had idly come up with a tune called "The Innkeeper's Song". It was several years later that he finally wrote the book The Innkeeper's Song, "to find out what the hell the song was really about." This world entranced him so much that he wrote a series of six stories set in the same land, only one of which has characters from Innkeeper. The collection, called Giant Bones, was written because, as he says, "I just missed those people! It's never happened to me before."
