I got this book ages ago on the strength of it being edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley, one of my favorite authors back when this book was published in 1983. "Greyhaven" is one of the homes that MZB lived in, and "the spiritual home" to a community of writers, friends and family of the author who write speculative fiction. The publisher even grandiosely compared them to the Bloomsbury group of Virginia Woolf. No, just no. A really fine short story is as memorable or more than any novel. I recently ...more

I read this way back in my early MZB reading tween years and don't remember any of the stories except that one featured Lythande, a character of MZB's who appears in some other stories of hers.

Interessant. Nicht alle Geschichten haben mir gefallen, aber es waren einige sehr schöne dabei. Manchmal merkt man allerdings, dass dieses Buch schon von 1983 ist - wenn einem in der Einleitung eine ungewöhnliche Wendung versprochen wird und man diese Art 'ungewöhnliche' Wendung schon dutzende Male in anderen Geschichten gesehen hat.

This book has been on my shelves for decades. I finally decided to read it and send it on its merry way. I'd only heard of a couple of the authors, so assume success didn't happen for the others. Most of the stories were enjoyable but forgettable, but I did very much like Cat Tale by Vicki Ann Heydron. One treasure in an anthology like this isn't bad.
