*** Gathering the work of several authors in a common theme, this anthology deals with soldiers trying to make it home after war, whether in the distant past or the far future. Some of the stories are fairly standard ghost tales, much like campfire standards or fairy tales, others, more imaginative. Among the later entries is a story set in an established 'universe' of one of the authors' making, and readers may feel lost if they have not read books in that series. However, for the most part, the stories need no 'historical' knowledge to enjoy. ***

You'll go a long way before you'll find a better group of writers, and they've produced stories for this collection that are as powerful as any book any of them has written. The theme of each is the 'wounded hero,' a man coping with the aftermath of a war--a timely subject if there ever was one--and each story has a central romance. Otherwise, all bets are off. You'll go from fantasy worlds to distant planets in the future to WWI America. You'll meet witches and ghosts, and be thrown into alternate realities. It's a smorgasbord, with something to satisfy every palate.
