Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Adult/High School

Eighteen stories by some of today's best-selling fantasists, including R. A. Salvatore, Will McDermott, and Nancy Virginia Varian, are gathered together in one volume. The tales range from a story about a princess trapped in an ice tower who learns the language of the birds to one that describes a young man of the future working in an alien diner, restless and driven to be a stowaway in a Megallanic truck loaded with deadly Hydro-Gel. Some settings and characters are unlike any encountered in reality, while others are familiar even in their peculiarity, and readers can connect with, relate to, and learn from the characters' experiences. Recommend this one to fans of alternative worlds, fantasy realms, and role-playing games.-Joanne Ligamari, Twin Rivers United School District, Sacramento, CA
