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.

This is one of the greatest books to hit the shelves within the past decade. Contained within are no less than ELEVEN unique, necessary novellas, each tied to one of the greatest fantasy series in print today. Just one of these has been reprinted separately - at $17.95! To anyone just getting introduced to Fantasy: BUY THIS BOOK!

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.

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.

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.
