This is a very well-written collection of short stories by sci-fi & fantasy authors, each related to one the authors' series. My favorite was probably the Earthsea story by Ursula K. LeGuin, but all of them were quite good. This is the first "Legends" collection by editor Robert Silverberg, and includes all the stories. It was also published in a 3-volume set as "Legends Vol. 1" etc.

For my own convenience I'm listing the stories, the authors and their series here:

"The Little Sisters of Eluria" by Stephen King - Dark Tower
"The Sea and Little Fishes" by Terry Pratchett - Discworld
"Debt of Bones" by Terry Goodkind - Sword of Truth
"Grinning Man" by Orson Scott Card - Tales of Alvin Maker
"The Seventh Shrine" by Robert Silverberg - Majipoor
"Dragonfly" by Ursula K. Le Guin - Earthsea
"The Burning Man" by Tad Williams - Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn
"The Hedge Knight" by George R.R. Martin - Song of Ice and Fire
"The Runner of Pern" by Anne McCaffrey - Pern
"The Wood Boy" by Raymond E. Feist - Riftwar
"New Spring" by Robert Jordan - Wheel of Time

I was familiar with several of these worlds before reading the collection - I think the unfamiliar one that intrigued me the most was the Wheel of Time story.
