This was a pretty solid S&S. Some excellent stories, some with great plots but awful execution, and some that really aren't worth the paper they're printed know, the usual. :P

This has one Cynthia story, one Shanna story, and one Tarma&Kethry story.

Worth a reread:

Equona's Mare, Diana L. Paxson (Shanna)
Stone of Light, Linda Gordon
Mirror Image, Nina Boal
Sleeping Dogs, Jennifer Roberson
The Making of a Legend, Mercedes Lackey (Tarma&Kethry; reprinted in Oathblood)
Burnt Offerings,
May Queen
Twenty-one short stories, some DNRs, some DNFs, some interesting. I must say I bought this thinking "Ooh, Darkover shorts!" and realised when I got it home that it was no such thing -- so tried it anyway. Stories below the cut.

Fairly sure I read up to No 12 or so, but not dead certain. Loved them all, great to have females outside the box at the time.
