This is not one of the better S&S offerings. Many of the stories are written by teenagers, and it shows. Of the ones that aren't, most of them have decent plots, but are awful in some other way - terrible dialogue, purple prose, an overabundance of adjectives...ugh. It doesn't even have a Cynthia story to redeem it. BPL copy, May 2013.

Worth rereading:

Call the Wild Horses, by Bunnie Bessell
Spirit Singer, Diana Paxson (the first Bera story, if I'm not mistaken)
The Haven, Judith Kobylecky

I've read many of Marian Zimmer Bradley's Sword & Sorceress anthologies. Some have had a few not-so-good stories in them, but nearly all the stories are at least good and worth reading, and many are awesome, the kind of story that stays in your memory and makes you glad you're holding the book. There's a mix of established authors and new ones, and a lot of variety in imagination. Another thing I like is that all the protagonists in these stories are female, and it's interesting to see how w ...more

Speravo di più nel giudizio di una scrittrice considerata tra le regine del fantasy, ma, probabilmente, essendo l'XI raccolta, i migliori racconti erano già stati pubblicati. Ci sono storie molto carine, ma molte, troppo sono immature... più di una volta peccano di mancato sviluppo della trama, di un finale affrettato o di una trama che cerca forzatamente di trasformare il reale in fantastico, appiccicandogli addosso lustrini, e cercando di farli passare per polvere di stelle. Sono racconti che ...more

Marion Zimmer Bradley edited this lacklaster collection. None of the short stories excited me, but two were better than the rest: Jessie Eaker's "Bad Luck and Curses," and Dave Smeds's "Rusted Blade."

Pretty mediocre collection with only a couple of standouts. Bradley was also pretty grouchy and cantankerous in her intro blurbs as well.

Triste ma vero, la maggior parte di questi racconti sono allo stesso livello, se non peggio, della media delle fanfiction che si trovano in rete -.-
