    I am one of the authors in this book, so take this as you will, but I felt the rest of the talented writers in this book deserved a review If you like your paranormal and urban fantasy chocked full of gods, goddesses, and legends then this anthology is a perfect fit Nine talented authors bring ancient myth into the modern era, deftly mixing magic into our everyday reality and beyond All the stories have a unique voice, from a touch of fairy tale in The Brother Sister Fable to detective noir in Charon s Obol think Harry Dresden meets Phillip Marlowe for that one , and much, much .My favourite tale in this anthology and that was a difficult choice would have to be Two Spoons I loved the soft, well crafted atmosphere ...

    For the benefit of my fellow authors in this anthology, this review is a shout out highlighting each story and what I loved most about them The Brother Sister Fable by Alyson Grauer And the Mystery Winds began to blow As the title suggests, this delightful tale is told in fable style, and would appeal to audiences both young and grown up It is at once charming and a little creepy, with lovely milieu immersion in the forested mountains of a New Englander s back yard, and creative depictions of the less natural creatures that live there who are desperate for a victim of their ethereal call to rule them when the seasons change This is the sort of tale that would be fun to read around a campfire at a family reunion, or at a Halloween party with friends Charon s Obol by R M RidleyThis gritty suspense mystery features a private detective who uses magic to help a young girl find her missing immortal parents Plouton and Persephone This story has plenty of action, an explosion, and, of course, magic I enjoyed the adventure This story piques my curiosity about Ridley s White Dragon Black series, and the urban magical universe this author has created Grail Days by A F Stewar...

    I m pleased to say this is one of the best anthologies I ve read in a while I thought I d found a favorite in the opening piece, The Brother Sister Fable enchantingly told by Alyson Grauer Then I got to A.F Stewart s Grail Days , a witty take on Arthurian legend, and wondered whether the book could contain anything further up my alley But it was the...

    In general, you should never completely trust the review of an anthology by one of its authors You can t know whether they actually liked it or not, regardless of what they write about it Each author in the book is pretty much obligated to love it or, if nothing else, risk the anthology s publisher never looking at their work again.Whatever anyone might think, this is both reasonable and fair If you can t support something you re part of, then you probably shouldn t have been part of it in the first place.But even if it sometimes takes me a while, I try to actually read all of the stories in every book or magazine I m lucky enough to be published in Being familiar with the stories that surround mine gives me a nice feel for where I m at as a writer, at least for the story at hand, as well as a snapshot of the state the subgenre the story might be part of.But like I said, you should never completely trust an anthology review written by one of its author In that light, I m not going to review Legends and Lore, though I will be just egocentric enough to bold my story in the TOC.Published in October of 2014 by Xychler Publishing, Legends and Lore was edited by Penny Freeman It ...
