The interconnectedness of stories becomes food for thought in this collection of tales that might have been inspirational to William Shakespeare. On the recording, the stories stand on their own. For background about the tales, and about Shakespeare and circumstances at the time of his writing, one has to read the accompanying book. Patrick Ryan flavors each story with distinctive elements--the arrogance of a conniving water pixie who meets his match in "The Devil's Bet," the remorse of a father who has missed years of his daughter's life in "Cap o' Rushes," and the wiliness of a disguised lawyer in "A Bargain Is a Bargain."
