Brust, Steven -- Tiassa
I don't know if Daniel Keys Moran still has it, but Brust does. This
is a collection of story-bits, ostensibly organized around a bit of
silverwork in the shape of a tiassa. We see Vlad early in his career,
and then in the "present" of the Vlad stories; we see Devera and Verra
and the rest of the gang around the edges. We see Khaavren, and then
we see Vlad from Khaavren's point of view, and if you haven't been
waiting for that for twenty years, there's something wrong with you.
All of this is so effortlessly tossed out, and so readable, that you
barely notice that the whole forms an answer to some crucial questions
about Vlad's life and Deverra's.
