It was fantastic overall, with some real gems and only a few duds. This anthology in honor of Tolkien contains very few stories that are overtly Tolkienesque. Once I understood that, I settled into the rhythm of it.

Personal highlights:
"Reave the Just" by Stephen R. Donaldson
"Troll Bridge" by Terry Pratchett
The phenomenal "Faith" by Poul and Karen Anderson
"The Fellowship of the Dragon" by Patricia A. McKillip
The excellent "The Conjure Man" by Charles de Lint
"Silver or Gold" by Emma Bull
"Gotterdammerung" by Barry N. Malzberg
"Down the River Road" by Gergory Benford
and "Death and the Lady" by Judith Tarr

I won't list my duds because your mileage will vary and they're by authors I don't generally enjoy.
