Review of The Story of Kao Yu

The Story of Kao YuThe Story of Kao Yu by Peter S. Beagle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this short story. The unicorns of Europe are mentioned as are the unicorn-like beings of the Middle East and both differentiated from the qilin (kirin). A Mandate coming to a just judge is a wonderful turn away from only Emperors getting them. The impossible and one sided romance was intriguing and well handled. The qilin though, he and the judge tie for my favorite character. A qilin not goring someone that lied in his presence because he was asked not to by a generous and previously just man that had his respect? Unheard of previously!
