    This was a pretty great anthology I was probably destined to like it because it s pretty hard for me to dislike most kinds of fantasy This is also different than some anthologies because the editor didn t commission pieces for this book, but collected them from other already published sources I sampled a lot of authors I ve been meaning to try fo

    This anthology was a very nice surprise although it contains a lot of well known names, I have discovered new ones for me and was delighted by the stories.Some are fragments from novels and the others were already published before in other magazines or anthologies, but for me they were all a first reading.Here are my thoughts on them Homecoming by Robi

    I was drawn to Epic Legends of Fantasy by two names Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss I confess I was slightly disappointed to find that the selections from those two personal favorites were excerpts from novels I had already read, but their inclusion served its purpose well I wasn t familiar with the other works in the anthology, so this proved to be a

    A wonderful selection of short epic fantasy HOMECOMING, by Robin Hobb aka Megan Lindholm , was the best of the lot in my opinion An excellent look at a society and culture very different from the standard fare, a strong heroine, and a remarkably tense climax.RIDING THE SHORE OF THE RIVER OF DEATH by Kate Elliott was a close second This had a great old school feel blended with a truly sat

    Epic Legends of Fantasy, edited by John Joseph Adams, is an anthology of stories written by some of the biggest names in epic fantasy The book clocks in at over 600 pages not just because it s very difficult to tell short epic stories though some of these authors do manage to pull it off but because here the authors are not just telling epic legends, they are legends in and of themselves Georg
