About the Author
Elisabeth Waters sold her first short story in 1980 to Marion Zimmer Bradley for THE KEEPER'S PRICE, the first of the Darkover anthologies. She then went on to sell dozens of short stories to a variety of anthologies. Her first novel, a fantasy called CHANGING FATE, was awarded the 1989 Gryphon Award. She is now working on a sequel to it, in addition to her short-story writing and anthology editing. She has also worked as a supernumerary with the San Francisco Opera, where she appeared in La Gioconda, Manon Lescaut, Madama Butterfly, Khovanshchina, Das Rheingold, Werther, and Idomeneo.

28," is a well-edited collection of short stories featuring strong
heroines in magical fantasy settings. Elisabeth Waters has done a
great job of anthologizing tales by both former contributors and
writers new to the field of high fantasy. My favorite story was Pauline J. Alama's "The Damsel
in the Garden," which recites a medieval-style tale of a knight in shining
armor braving magical perils to save three brothers. But this knight
is a girl, who not only prevails in this exciting quest but finds true
love. Another standout was Jonathan Shipley's "Dead Salt," in which sorceress Jenna works with army
buddy Trayn to keep the peace, but she doesn't get much respect.
When they lay their lives on the line, we again appreciate how public
servants sacrifice on our behalf, even when we don't deserve it.
She puts in her anthologies stories she would like to read, and her and my taste coincide quite well.
I don't like tragedies and horror. While horrific things happen in some of the stories, they don't trip off my uck filter.
Some of the stories contain characters seen in prior anthologies, and are even more enjoyable for that.
Very good in my opinion.
