Average Rating: 3. The most confusing story of the bunch for me was 'Afterlife of St. Vidicom of Cathode', and perhaps it's a failing of mine for never reading a novel in Christopher Stasheff's Warlock universe.

See my comments attached to my status updates below for slightly more information, thoughts and reactions to individual stories. A masterful fantasy collection of short stories in various established universes by well-known authors of the genre. I definitely recommend it to round out your reading repertoire for these authors.

Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. This collection of 31 short stories absolutely blew me away. You will not find a single elf, dwarf, or warrior maiden in a chain mail bikini within these pages. No dragons, princesses, bearded w This collection of 31 short stories absolutely blew me away.
No dragons, princesses, bearded wizards, or magic swords to be found. Rather, most of these stories are probably more appropriately classified as science fiction or even horror. Stories by such stratospheric authors of yesteryear as H. Lovecraft , Abraham Merritt A. Whenever I crack open a new collection of short stories, unless it is a volume by a single author in whom I have supreme confidence I worry that it will contain the usual bunch of OK stories but with more duds than treasures.
This one, happily, does not suffer from that trope at all. There were a couple that were merely OK but the vast majority of these stories were…well…fantastic!

Apr 20, Jean-marcel rated it it was amazing. A terrific anthology, this, which I'd recommend to just about anybody, especially those who think that all of fantasy literature is just Various Shades of Tolkien. There's some tremendous work in here from genuine classic authors. But I'd never read some of these particular tales What might surprise some is the inclusion of many stories that are also considered a part of the horror genre. Lovecraft's classic "Rats in the Walls" is here, and I'd consider Brown's "Come and Go mad" to be true existential-tinged horror, and the Thomas Disch piece in here is a terrible nightmare.
But there are some lighthearted tales, too, and the important thing is that nearly every one of them in here ranges from startlingly good to brilliant. Get this one! May 10, Jason rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , fiction. It was my first introduction to quality fantasy short stories. It was such a pleasure to read and I found myself drawn in to its pages as a magical escape at a time when life isn't all too kind.
I'm grateful that I had this compilation when I needed it.
Jul 04, Kathy Sebesta rated it it was amazing. Some of the best earlier fantasy stories. I think I've probably read most of them in other anthologies, but it was nice to see them all together.
