Cherryh is such a fine writer, her stories always having a human quality. Here she teams up with 3 other known writers in this trilogy published in one volume. The story is not epic, even the magic users are realistically human with only the ability to ill-wish or bring good luck to enemies or friends. A skill that backfires in one story with Karmic like consequences.

There is no BIG BAD from BEYOND, just the greed, hate and ignorance any Free Thinker encounters in dealing with other humans. So quite refreshing from the monstrous battles and sword wielding heroes that populate most S&S novels.
