    A mixed bag of short works set in Valdemar; most I liked as much

    A mixed bag of short works set in Valdemar; most I liked as much as I like any shortstory (a few were just okay and could have really been set in other worlds but for some place and character/specie names). Particularly interesting the pseudo-science of magecraft and the cataclysms article at end by Larry Dixon. Not really a story but an interesting read for us Valdemar fans.

    Good Read

    Simple Gifts was a good story, as was the story with Jors and a few others. Wish they would do a 3 book series with one of the lesser characters in more detail from the entire series or make something new within the Valdemar framework. I am getting really REALLY tired and bored with all the Ree and Jem stories though. Enough already. Only so much to be said about a half cat/half man. We get it...perpetual anxiety for the time when society turns on him and treats him as non-human. We already know where that story goes. It's like being force fed cod liver oil and you're not sick. Bad tasting and not necessary.

    Highly Recommended -- Valdemar ... What's Not to Like!

    Once again Mercedes Lackey has organized another great group of authors to share their tales of Valdemar -- from Heralds to Bards and the magnificent white Companions, it is delightful to return to this magical land. Anyone can enjoy this volume of tales whether you are a long-time reader of the stories of Valemar or checking out something new. The book should come with a warning though, if you are new to these tales, it won't be long before you add Mercedes Lackey's other books to your collection.

    Read it. Love it.

    As with all works by or edited by Mercedes Lackey, it was wonderful. While I love Mercedes stories more, the fan writers have also done an excellent job. Great book!

    Another Great Valdemar Anthology

    I really enjoyed this book. It adds some missing details to some of the minor characters from other Valdemar books and anthologies.
