Shelves: fantasy
A good collection of stories, including sword-and-sorcery tales by Ramsey Campbell, David Drake, Tanith Lee and Darrell Schweitzer (the first in his grim, powerful Sir Julian series). A satisfactory reread.

Shelves: fantasy
Again, not quite as strong as the first volume in the series, but still a very good work. I was just starting to write when this series came out and I wanted desperately to crack this market but ended up never completing a story that I thought suitable until the last volume had published.
