Only skipped 2 stories in this anthology. I did find some authors I wouldn't have normally picked out. ( )

In the introduction to this collection of short stories, the editor writes that he has always been a fan of "Sword and Sorcery" Fantasy, and he recognizes the essential stamp of that style on the realistic "Grimdark" Fantasy that has been gaining popularity since the mid-1990's. To me, the general difference between those sorts of stories is that the former tends to have more success (or at least survival) for its protagonists, and those protagonists tend to be more heroic (even if they're brooding troubled Byronic anti-heroes). The stories in this collection vary between those two subgenres, and I think that makes the total package stronger. There's no guarantee that things will turn out well for any of the characters, but neither is there a promise that it will all always go wrong. ( )

After listening to more then 50% of this book, I decided it was time to just drop it. I only liked one of the 14 stories I did listen to , I did skip a few of them within those 14 but I just can't do it anymore. These are long, drawn out and boring stories. None of them were keeping my attention, I was falling asleep through them, it just wasn't worth my time and effort. The one story I did like was "Her Father's Sword" by Robin Hood, it was interesting and appealing, and kept my attention. I may be missing out on the rest of the stories, but I honestly don't know and honestly don't care. Its not worth the struggle to keep trying to listen to this ( )

Some good stories here, but don't be fooled by the title - the stories for the most part don't have anything to do with swords. I fell for the trap and assumed this would be somehow related to swords, combat, something like that. This is just another vehicle for fantasy writers to write short stories, which may or may not have swords in them. Many of them are about rogues, not swordsmen. It would probably also help if I was more familiar with the worlds of some of the authors, so if you are fans of some of these writer's longer works, the stories may appeal to you more. ( )
