"Masters of Fantasy" provides readers an introduction to many of the big name fantasy writers publishing now, as well as the popular series each author is known for. For someone who does not know Mercedes Lackey's "Valdemar", or Andre Norton's "Witchworld", or the many other worlds evoked here by writers like David Drake, Elizabeth Moon, and Margaret Weis, this volume gives a peek into such realms. The quality of writing varies in the course of the collection. In this way, the book may be of even greater use to fantasy writers new to the genre, especially by examining what works in each story and what doesn't. For the fledgling writer, it can also be instructive to see famous names like Mike Resnick completely drop the ball. If such a prolific author can write something so painfully awful, then maybe our own ideas might not be so bad after all.

Some stories here rise above the rest. Mercedes Lackey gives us one of the more unusual denizens to inhabit her well-known world, Andre Norton tells us an unusual tale of a mute witch, and Margaret Weis and Don Perrin weave a dashing magical story. Perhaps the most satisfying stories in this volume are the ones by Elizabeth Moon ("Gifts") and Janny Wurts ("Child of Prophecy"). The volume is a grab bag, but amongst the marbles and stones are a handful of gems.

I've been reading fantasy for many, many years so several of the authors were "old friends" and still some of the short stories here surprised me. Some gave new accounts on worlds I thought I knew. A few of the authors were new to me. Some I liked, some less... I was moved to order more books by at least two authors I discovered here :)
A good book to read, to (re)discover known or unknown authors.

Some of my favorite authors, and some who will become favorite, write stories which capture interest. Well put together and completely worth reading.

This is the worst book of fantasy short stories I ever read. There are possibly 2 masters here, Norton and Wurts; Lackey is ok for young adults and Moon's story is good. The rest of these authors never got past journeyman status.
