Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In her rather inelegantly titled A Quest-Lover's Treasury of the Fantastic, Margaret Weis, coathor of the Dragonlance and Death Gate series, collects her favorite stories of brave missions and heroic undertakings. Whether it's Charles L. Fontenay's The Silk and the Song, in which a young human tries to free his fellow humans from enslavement to the tailed, four-fingered Hussirs, or Lois Tilton's Greek mythology inspired Firebearer, in which a young blacksmith tries to rescue the god who gave humans fire, we turn, writes Weis, to quest stories to learn how to be heroes of our own lives.

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

Despite the product description there is nothing by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and from Margaret Weis, there is only the Introduction and no story. I suggest interested readers download the Kindle sample to peruse the contents. I also suggest Amazon and/or the publisher remove Marion Zimmer Bradley as a linked author. Other than that, this looks like a nice collection of related short stories, and Margaret Weis usually has good taste as an editor. I did enjoy the half-a-story by C.J. Cherryh, though not enough to invest $10 in a short story collection at this time (I have other books I want to buy first... :D)

I all want to say in this short review is that this is one of the best (short) collections of fantasy stories out there. Every one of the stories is engaging and continues being so all the way till the end. My favorite by far is "Bully and the Beast" by Orson Scott Card. Beautiful and thought-provoking. Most of the stories have humor worked into them too. I highly recommend this collection
