The Civil War is the bloodiest conflict to ever rage over American soil, and was waged in a time that invokes a certain sad romance. Perhaps that is why it still burns to brightly in our minds, and stirs so many emotions. Those emotions are pulled into strands and woven into a beautiful tapestry of the supernatural in this volume masterfully edited by Martin Greenberg. Though not all stories take place during the Civil War, some involve recreations, all capture the essence of the conflict, the pride, pain, and hope that made it so tragic. A complete list of the stories is: *** Martial by Nancy Springer, *** A Place to Stand by kWilliam H. Keith, Jr., *** Hex¿em John by James H. Cobb, *** Gettysburg Dreams by Brendan Du Bois, *** Images by Josepha Sherman, *** Ghosts of Honor by Denise Little, *** Boot Hill by Asaro and Resnick, ***The Three Cigars by Robert Sheckley, *** The General¿s Bane by Mike and Shiela Gilbert, *** The Federal Spy and Mix Julia by Karen Haber, ***Stew by Donald J. Bingle, *** Loose Upon the Earth a Daemon by Tim Waggoner, *** Surviving the Elephant by Lisa Silverthorne, *** The Pluck of O¿ Reilly by Gary Alan Ruse, *** Across Hickman¿s Bridge to Home by R. Davis, *** News From the Long Mountain by Braunbeck and Snyder, ***The Last Full Measure by Davis Bischoff and *** Burial Detail by Kristine Kathryn Rusch This is a solid anthology, a haunting combination of horror and fantasy mixed with history. If you¿re looking for something well written but unusual, you could do far worse than this anthology. Highly recommended.
