The case studies are short stories in which Jahir and Vasiht'h address the problems of their clients (or of their own). Originally posted on Livejournal and then sold as a separate collection, The Case of the Poisoned House, they are now included in the backs of the later Dreamhealers novels, with some exceptions.
