Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is an anthology of 13 short stories which I found, not surprisingly, a mixed bag. I quite liked some of them, such as Esther M. Friesner's 'Roomies' and Eugie Foster's 'Honour is a Game Mortals Play'; but I didn't get the ending of some of the other stories.Whether this was a factor of their being short stories or because I started off reading in a bit of a rush, I'm not quite sure. But I didn't hate any of them, so I will make time, some time, to go back and read them again at leisure.

A bunch of good stories about young heros to be. Most were very enjoyable. One was difficult to understand, but over all, I enjoyed the whole book.
