Valdemar is my favorite fictional fantasy world, but I have been disappointed with Mercedes Lackey's offerings as of late. It just kinda seems like she's rather be doing something (anything) else than writing in Valdemar once again. Which is why I have loved these short story anthologies so much. They play in the world that I love, but the myriad authors exude the enthusiasm and fresh looks that I've been craving.

That being said, not every story is a hit in this anthology. If I could have given it 3.5 stars, I would have because about 1/2 the stories are meh and 1/2 the stories are really good. Probably my favorite was Tanya Huff's story: Herald Jors + baby = many laughs.
