    A thoroughly enjoyable collection of swashbuckling adventure tal

    A thoroughly enjoyable collection of swashbuckling adventure tales with fantasy elements. Many of the stories fall squarely into the fantasy of manners subgenre that I greatly enjoy, in particular Sherwood Smith's theater-based "The Art of Masks," Tanith Lee "Question a Stone" and Judith Tarr's "The Woman Who Fell in Love with the Horned King." Certainly, these were amongst my favorites, but I would also include K.D. Wentworth's "The Garden of Swords," with its heroic kitchen-maid coached into fighting prowess by trapped ghosts, Samantha Henderson's "Outlander" and Diana Paxson's "Blue Velvet," which I would love to read more of, on that list as well. Even the stories that didn't work for me were interesting reads: Shannon Page and Jay Lake's "Embers" didn't feel like it stood alone from a larger work, Rosemary H. Jarman's Norse-mythos flavored "Fire and Ice and Burning Rose" seemed an odd fit with the other choices, and Sean McMullen's "Culverelle" felt rushed toward the end. The cover, on the other hand, is truly unfortunate and I suspect drives off some of the readership that a fine anthology with an all-star cast like this one would otherwise attract. But my advice is to ignore it, buy the book and enjoy some excellent storytelling. Highly recommended!
