From Earthsea to Cimmeria, Lankmar to Markovy, the dozen stories here brim with swordplay, adventure, music, and magic. Here there be dragons... as well as wily wizards and mighty-thewed warriors, fleet-footed thieves and flat-footed palace guards, wise witches and fearsome giants, and even a humble storyteller or two. The contributors include some of the genres greatest writers - Robert E. Howard and L. Sprague de Camp, Fritz Lieber, and Ursula K. Le Guin - as well as modern masters such as Phyllis Eisenstein, R. Garcia y Robertson, Ellen Kushner, John Morressy, and Pat Murphy, plus stories from exciting newcomers like Charles Coleman Finlay, Yoon Ha Lee, and Chris Willrich. It all adds up to a dozen peerless forays into the fantastic and a great book for anyone with a yearning for adventure!
