About the Author:

David Weber's New York Times best-selling Honor Harrington series is the hottest in science fiction today, and he has proven himself to be equally a master of fantasy with his popular novels in the Bahzell series, Oath of Swords, The War God's Own, and the just-released Windrider's Oath. Mercedes Lackey is among the most popular of today's fantasy writers and her Valdemar novels are best sellers. Mickey Zucker Reichert is the author of such best-selling fantasy series as The Bifrost Guardians and the Books of Barakhai series. David Drake is author of the best-selling Hammer's Slammers series for Baen and the equally popular Lord of the Isles fantasy series for Tor. Andre Norton is known both for her science fiction and for her fantasy, including the Witch World novels, which have been enthralling readers for four decades. Elizabeth Moon's Paksenarrion series have been among Baen's top-selling titles for the past decade. Alan Dean Foster is known for his top-selling space adventures, his movie novelizations, and his fantasy adventure novels. Robert Asprin is a New York Times best-selling author, known in fantasy for his popular Myth series. Margaret Weis is known for her popular dragon novels. Michael Resnick is author of the Hugo and Nebula Award winning Kirinyaga series. Christopher Stasheff is author of the popular Warlock series.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School–This volume presents new stories set in several series of proven and lasting popularity, by some of the best writers in the genre. They include Mercedes Lackey ("Valdemar"), Andre Norton ("Witchworld"), Robert Asprin and Jody Lynn Nye ("Myth Adventures"), Alan Dean Foster ("Spellsinger"), Christopher Stasheff ("Warlock"), and David Drake ("Isles"). Other selections by Mickey Zucker Reichert, Margaret Weis and Don Perrin, Janny Wurts, Elizabeth Moon, Mike Resnick, and David Weber round out this impressive collection. Most of the stories manage the tricky task of introducing a whole new universe with economy while telling a story that is amusing, compelling, interesting, spellbinding, or all of the above. Though anthologies can be difficult for libraries to merchandise, this one could be very useful. Novice fantasy readers who liked J. R. R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" series or Marion Zimmer Bradley's TheMists of Avalon (Ballantine, 1984) often find the search for "more like this" both frustrating and disappointing; though there are many other series, packaged similarly, they vary widely in style and quality. In this collection, readers who are not familiar with particular series are given an excellent sample of each, to see whether it suits their interests and tastes, and of course experienced fans of the genre will welcome these new outings in familiar universes.–Christine C.
