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.

An excellent addition to the storylines. More on "background" characters. Especially enjoy the Jem and Ree stories. And what is going to happen with the Shiniain?

Picked up for Tanya Huff's story, which did not disappoint. Other stories continue tales told in previous anthologies, but I wasn't too impressed with the "official" section on background info on Valdemar and surrounding countries. There's been so much text written about the world, most of it was self evident by now, and I'd rather have been given a new piece of fiction. I'd like to see more new voices in this anthology series, but it's still worth picking up if you like the previous ones.

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!

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

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.
