Format: Paperback
Good Book!
The stories set in the mountains and the frozen wastes were definitely my favorites. I don't like heat and humidity in real life and I guess that carries over to fiction.

There is a lot of variety in the anthology and many good to great stories.

A particular favorite character is the 'little grandfather' in the story "Vasily and the Beast Gods" by Daniel R. Robichaud. The story may be based on Russian Folktales although I do not know if the little grandfather is taken directly from Russian Myth.

The other stories run more to the vein of fantasy with more gore and grit then you find in folklore; more sword than sorcery yet there is plenty of sorcery. "Thunder Canyon" by Jeff Draper is one of best tales in the anthology for me. It is definitely pulp sword and sorcery worth reading.

You will enjoy almost every story in the book and they each have a distinct flavor so you should find quite a few gems in this treasure trove.

Format: Paperback
I was originally interested in this anthology of 21 tales because it includes a story The Rotten Bones Rattle by one of my favorite authors C. L. Werner. Upon reading all the way through the anthology there some other stories that stand out from the rest though all the shorts are quite good reads.

Serpents beneath the Ice by Carl Walmsley
Is the story of an adventurer of renown who hires guides to hunt the dreaded beasts. The culture of the guides, reminiscent of the Inuits, has peaked my interest enough to want to hear more of them. The monsters that threaten them are believable enough to make sense within the context of the story. The story does an excellent job of gripping the reader, pulling him in and not letting go.

Black Diamond Sands by Lois Tilton
Is the story of a pupil/slave that is sent on a mission to spy the secret of the enemy wizards. Slow to start but ending all to quickly this piece left me with the feeling and knowledge that Lois Tilton is definitely an author to watch for. It is one of those stories where you definitely appreciate the ending, thinking to yourself "that was good".

Vasily and the Beast Gods by Daniel R. Robichaud
Is the story of Vasily and the quest for the vast treasure of the gods with ultimate power. Though he would rather be back at home cooking venison. He must defeat Little Grandfather husband to BabaYaga an eater of flesh and invulnerable to mortal weapons, but not to mortal minds, and win through to save the fair maiden(questionable).

Yaggoth-Voor A Tale of Mortlock the Footman by Bruce Durham
A cross between Call of Cthulhu and Pirates of the Carribean. Well worth the read.

Beyond the Reach of his Gods by Brian Ruckley
Titanic sized snake. Nuff said!

“There is a monster for each of us to face. Some we conquer; some we flee; some we negotiate with; some we suffer; some we… become.” So opens the preface by editor Jason M. Waltz.

And what would life be without behemoth challenges? And what would fantasy fiction be without monsters? Cripes… why are so few anthologies devoted to them? Rogue Blades Entertainment (RBE, publishers of the superb Return of the Sword) filled this much needed gap in literature.

Rage of the Behemoth has 21 quality tales from contemporary authors. Many heroic fantasy anthologies feature the deceased masters, but RBE consistently focuses on showcasing today’s authors. Few will disappoint. I highlight my personal favorites for each of the five environmentally-themed categories:
Depthless Seas: “Black Water” by Sean T.M. Steinnon
Frozen Wastes: “The Wolf of Winter” by Bill Ward (my favorite of the entire anthology)
Scalding Sands: “Black Diamond Sands” by Lois Tilton
Mysterious Jungles: “Yaggoth-Vor” Bruce Durham…and “Beyond the Reach of His Gods” by Brian Ruckley
Ageless Mountains: “The Rotten Bones Rattle” C.L. Werner

Some of the behemoths: The list below has names conjured by me (not the authors), and are not listed in order of appearance…to avoid spoiling the fun: Ursine God, Behemoth Boar, Cockatrice, Djinn Storm, Dragon, Eldritch horror, Griffin, Human Centipede, Ice Hydra, Loch Ness Leviathan, Lovecraftian Giant Crab, Lyncanthrope, Manitcore, Mineral Snake, Roc (Giant Bird), Rock Golem, Scaled Pachyderm, Serpent, Shape-shifting Demon, Skeleton Titan, Wolf God.

Given the number of tales, their quality, and their variety, this is a definite recommended read.
