    I only read the story by Elizabeth Haydon in this anthology, Threshold , part of her Symphony of the Ages universe It s been a long time since I read it, so I can t go into details about it, but this story is incredibly well written It envoked strong emotions in me It s very rare that stories envoke stomach clenching horror, but Threshold did that.


  2. Rhonda Rhonda says:

    I only got this to read the George R R Martin story because it is the second in the prequels to his A Song of Ice and Fire books I really enjoyed the continuing story of the main characters, Dunk and Egg, and look forward to his third installment.

    I picked up this anthology primarily to read the Terry Brooks contribution, and fell in love with Elizabeth Haydon s story Her novels sometimes leave a bit to be desired, but if you only read one story of hers, make it this one.

    This is a short story anthology that I own, and I think it s a great addition to my library I purchased this book because I was actively reading the worlds of several of the authors included in the book and I would have recommended all those I was already reading especially George R R Martin and Elizabeth Haydon , and I enjoyed what I learned from these stories I also enjoyed the introduction to those authors I had not been reading.

    I ve read the fantasy of George R.R Martin, Orson Scott Card, and Terry Brooks before, and I liked their three stories It s been over a decade since I read any of Mr Card s or Mr Brooks s fantasy, and I didn t enjoy their stories here as well as Mr Martin s I liked Mr Card s story about Alvin Maker better than the Shannara story although at the time, I think I liked the Shannara series better The Shannara story was like one of the novels in miniature Stranger arrives in Shady Vale, tak I ve read the fantasy of George R.R Martin, Orson Scott Card, and Terry Brooks before, and I liked their three stories It s been over a decade since I read any of Mr Card s or Mr Brooks s fantasy, and I didn t enjoy their stories here as well as Mr Martin s I liked Mr Card s story about Alvin Maker better than the Shannara story although at the time, I think I liked the Shannara series better The Shannara story was like one of the novels in miniature Stranger arrives in Shady Vale, takes scion of Shannara off on a quest to destroy evil, journey sequence, sneaking into the stronghold, finale It even had a miniature version of the bad guy Being so accelerated as to just go through the bare formula, however, is sort of like seeing the trick in a magic show It feels flat Diana Gabaldon and Elizabeth Haydon were new to me Ms Gabaldon s story was very readable, and enjoyable, although hardly fantastic the only real element of fantasy was a mention, in passing, of a time traveling Woman, but the story itself was simply historical fiction I did not like Ms Haydon s story I found it an unartful mishmash of stock fantasy elements

    For the record, I m only read the George R R Martin story in this one, library book and I don t read fast enough.I thought the story was pretty good mostly a demonstration of how detailed the Westeros world is, and that is pretty impressive Parts of the story were somewhat cliche, strong woman kept down in a man s world, differences in social standing getting in between people, etc I was a bit down on the story until the last 20 or so pages, when it finally picked up I imagine folks who ar For the record, I m only read the George R R Martin story in this one, library book and I don t read fast enough.I thought the story was pretty good mostly a demonstration of how detailed the Westeros world is, and that is pretty impressive Parts of the story were somewhat cliche, strong woman kept down in a man s world, differences in social standing getting in between people, etc I was a bit down on the story until the last 20 or so pages, when it finally picked up I imagine folks who are completely in love with Martin s world must love the richness of these stories, but I m still somewhat down on the extra material in Feasts for Crows to be one of those folks
