|Plot Summary of Sword and Sorceress XVIII|
Daw, May 2001, 6.99, 320 pp.
This twenty-story anthology centers on “impossible tasks” and “invading armies” on an epic fantasy scale. However, the stories contain a bit of a twist as the plots star gender bender heroines not the usual heroes in a way that is like placing the women's NCAA tournament on center stage. Each story is well written and fans of fantasy will full relish the short story collection with some of the genre's better known authors contributing works.
Just before final editing and publication, the legendary Marion Zimmer Bradley passsed away. This reviewer feels that Ms Bradley is smiling as she reads her copy of this collection because she has to know that not only is the book quite good, but a fitting tribute to her as well.
