Once again, Martin Greenberg and DAW produces a devilishly masterful anthology, this one centered around stories that captures traditional stories at the beginning or the middle, the time that evil has absolute control. The heroes have been beaten, and live in the shadows. A complete listing of the stories follows: *** The Embrace of the Serpent by Tim Waggoner, *** Few of Us by Jean Rabe, *** The Angel Chamber by Russell Davis, *** Ineffable by Issac Szpindel, *** Flint and Iron by Rick Hautala, *** Reel by Julie E. Czerneda, ***Comes Forth by Jane Lindskold, *** Climb, Said the Crow by Brooks Peck, *** Red Star Prophecy by Mickey Zucker Reichert, *** Rekindling the Light by Jody Lynn Nye, *** Iraqi Heat by Gregory Benford, Slow Poison by Tayna Huff, The Weapon by Michelle West, and The Captain of the Dead by Fiona Patton. Most of the stories have a melancholy note, which is to be expected given the circumstances. Some of the stories take place in our own history, some take place in fantasy realms. The only reason I gave this story 4 stars instead of 5 is several stories have a very unfinished feel about them, and a few of the stories are just poorly written. But only a few clinkers with the rest of the stories being as strong and fierce as they are makes this anthology well worth the price. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?
