Format: Paperback
This is a really diverse collection of 22 tales that range from classic science fiction, to fantasy, to horror. It delivers all of the weirdness and adventure promised in the foreword. These stories provide modern renditions of classic story telling. No two are the same, and yet there is an overall cohesiveness in the collection. If you're looking for stories to entertain all types of sci-fi readers, there's something in here for everyone. Especially enjoyable are 'How Pell Left', 'Terms of Use' and 'God's Love'.

This is fun to read for Dungeons and Dragons players and maybe World of Warcrafters. Monsters and unnatural creatures and fantasy collected from Fight On magazine. Evil, demonic people, p;us a few heroes. Escape from boring reality.

I don't think any of the stories in this anthology are "bad"; they are all well-written, albeit at varying degrees of quality. My biggest complaint is that, for an anthology put out by the creators of Fight On! magazine, an old school gaming periodical, there is very little fiction in here that reflects "old school fantasy gaming", and I don't mean simply taking D&D sessions and turning them into fiction. Essentially, this might as well be an anthology of short stories culled from Realms of Fantasy magazine or any other generic fantasy fiction periodical.

Stories like Weregild, A Secret of the Trade, Badlands, Between Honor and Glory, Eyes of the Spider, Scaling the Tower and The Heist fit the mold of what I felt this book should be, but others, such as How Pell Left, Remember When, God's Love, Owasa, and The Walking, while not terrible stories, are hardly "thoroughly thrilling tales of harrowing scope", as the description calls this anthology. In fact, I can't even really figure out why those particular stories - especially Owasa and Remember When - were even contenders.

In the forward to the book the editor claims they received "hundreds" of submissions. Either these 22 stories were the only submissions penned to an acceptable level of quality, or the editors actually went to great pains to avoid creating a collection of stories that fit the framework of what I think "an old school gaming periodical" would publish as a fiction anthology.

Again, I don't want to knock the actual quality of writing (otherwise this would be a 2-star review), but I was expecting an anthology with a lot more "thoroughly thrilling tales of harrowing scope".
