This is the story of Huan Po, the poet who invented kites, and of Li Zheng, the sorceress who died because they were beautiful. It also concerns General Liu Hsin who learned that war and beauty can never share the same house. So begins The Man Who Loved Kites, a reweaving of myth and legend into a bittersweet origin story spun from faith, greed, love, magic, and invention in Medieval China.

Written in the style of a folktale, it is, ultimately, a story of unfailing love in the face of war. Originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, this chapbook release has been reset as a collectors edition, featuring a gorgeous cover illustration by award-winning fantasy and science fiction artist Maurizio Manzieri.

People intimately familiar with kite flying will appreciate the fine detail of this story- all who appreciate fine writing will love this small book. The Man Who Loved Kites will grip your heart from the first words . . . and is a must for every kite bag! (Ruth Hackman, kite flyer for over thirty years)
