From release/information:

Readers often wonder "How did they ever come up with that idea?" Well, some novels have at their core a short story that wouldn't go away and nagged it's author until it became a novel. In Novel Ideas: Fantasy, Brian M. Thomsen has published eight short stories that later became longer works: "St. Dragon and the George" by Gorden R. Dickson; "Unicorn Tapestry" by Suzy McKee Charnas; "Hatrack River" by Orson Scott Card; "The Gargoyle's Shadow" by Katherine Kurtz; "Jerlayne" by Lynn Abbey, "Gilgamesh in the Outback" by Robert Silverberg; "Shipwizard" by James Ward; and "Lost Boys" by Orson Scott Card.

So, if you've every wondered where the ideas for a novel comes from this is an interesting look at the sources of some of fantasy's best-loved and popular novels.
