About the Author:

Maragaret Weiss is the multiple NY Times bestselling author of the epic fantasy DRAGONLANCE and the Death Gate series. She lives in Wisconsin.

From Booklist:

The latest of Warner Aspect's commendable trade paperback anthologies demonstrates variations on the quest theme to fantasy fans lately recruited or reenergized by the recent film of The Fellowship of the Ring. So doing, it shows the range of the quest theme and the proficiency of Weis as an editor. Two authors no longer with us, Poul Anderson and Karl Edward Wagner, are represented by, respectively, a humorous short piece and a rather dark one concerned with the price of setting lovers off on perilous quests. C. J. Cherryh presents a king who learns from a dragon, and in arguably the best story in the book, Orson Scott Card gives us another dragon, slain by a warrior who knew already more than the dragon expected. Michael Moorcock's contribution is about his staple character Elric, Neil Gaiman's is predictably dark, but each is representative of its author's most serious work. Think of this as an intelligent grab-bag, suitable to just about every fantasy collection. Roland Green

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Going all the way back to Homer s Odyssey , the quest is a popular and well-respected story-telling format in Western literature, seen in such classics as The Pilgrim s Progress , Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and the legends of the knights of the Round Table s search for the Holy Grail. It is also a theme that appears regularly in modern fantasy stories, including The Lord of the Rings - the epitome of a modern fantasy quest novel. In some cases, the quest is a rite of passage or internal search for self-knowledge. But often it s a journey that takes the hero (and his plucky band of companions) far afield to explore strange new lands and resolve dangerous challenges and obstacles with his wits and his brawn. By his very survival the hero proves himself worthy of his goal. Margaret Weis has assembled a collection of such stories including tales from by Neil Gaiman, C.J. Cherryh and Marion Zimmer Bradley and the Mercedes Lackey story The Cup and The Cauldron . Seller Inventory # APC9780446679275
