Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These are Volumes 2 and 3 of the four planned unabridged audiobook programs that together comprise the new fantasy anthology Legends: Stories by the Masters of Modern Fantasy, edited by Silverberg (see Vol. 1, Audio Reviews, LJ 11/1/98). The anthology contains new and original works from famous writers of epic fantasy, with each set in an established fictional universe. Conveying this large anthology as four separate volumes, containing two to three stories each, is a double-edged sword: it allows the consumer to pick and choose only the programs that appeal but makes the entire work rather pricey. Volume 2 contains Robert Jordan's "The Wheel of Time: New Spring," Terry Pratchett's "Discworld: The Sea and Little Fishes," and Orson Scott Card's "Tales of Alvin Maker: The Grinning Man." Volume 3 adds Terry Goodkind's "The Sword of Truth: Debt of Bones," Ursula K. Le Guin's "Earthsea: Dragonfly," and Tad Williams's "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn: The Burning Man." Frank Muller, Sam Tsoutsouvas, and Kathryn Walker are the skilled and imaginative readers here. Although the performances and production are impeccable, the stories vary somewhat, if not in quality then in the facility with which they engage a listener who is uninitiated to the corresponding epic cycle. The packaging provides one- to two-line descriptions, but other contextual material available in the printed book (e.g., the introduction by Silverberg, listings of all the books in the series to date) are absent. Still, both volumes are recommended for all fantasy fiction collections.--Kristen L. Smith, Loras Coll. Lib., Dubuque, IA

    Just what you'd expect

    What would you expect from 11 short stories from 11 of the best selling famous of modern fantasy writers? The stories are set in the same worlds of the original best selling works. The results are pretty much the same as the originals, in other words best selling quality short novels. If you liked the original you'll enjoy the short story. The stories all add something without being crucial. If you're a fan of any of the authors listed, or just wanted to read something by them then you should check out this book. I give it an A on the StuPage Book Reviews.

    I Also Recommend:

    Legends

    I was only interested in the two short stories by Stephen King and Raymond E. Feist. The others I did not read.
    The Dark Tower: The Little Sisters of Eluria
    I absolutely loved this short story! It was great to re-visit The Dark Tower series! Wandering the desert, in search of Walter, Roland finds himself trapped in a dead town of Eluria. He is "nursed" back to health by a group of sisters. What he finds there are love, a deep secret of the sisters, and the memories of his past that he keeps close to him. A really great read!
    The Riftwar Saga: The Wood Boy
    I really loved this short story too! It makes me want to re-read the Raymond E. Feist novel from beginning to end. Dirk is a servant of the lord, in Walinor, He is found by the Midkemia soldiers, drawing a sled, and saturated in blood. He has an amazing tale to tell Borric.

    Astounding reading! Great to get hooked on other authors of the genre.

    First, there are quite a few versions of this book... there is a hardcover, a full paperback, then a seperate set that is spanned across 3 mass market paperbacks (titled Legends 1, Legends 2 and Legends 3). Whichever way you go, this is an EXCELLENT book (or series, if you go with the broken set). 11 original stories by top authors set in their famous fantasy worlds. Most fantasy readers will recognise some of the authors, and this book should get readers hooked on some of the other authors as well.

    Paperback Legends 1, 2, & 3 are just the Hardbound split into three paperback books

    Please keep in mind that if you own the Legends hardbound book, that these three paperback Legends 1, 2, & 3 are just the Hardbound split into three paperback books.
