Verlyn Flieger is a specialist in comparative mythology with a concentration in J.R.R. Tolkien. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in Tolkien, Celtic, Arthurian, Native American, and Norse myth.

The Inn at Corbies' Caww is Verlyn Flieger's latest novel, a sequel to her highly acclaimed Pig Tale.

Ignorant of who they really are and why they are there, four strangers, two women and two men, meet apparently by accident at the deserted Inn of Corbies' Caww. During the weeks that follow, an uneasy friendship develops among the four as cross-currents of desire and fear and memory entangle them in a web of emotions, forcing them to act out the pattern they have forgotten they are in.
