Swords Against Darkness by Paula Guran

This book is chock-full of fantasy tales that feature swords, epic battles and sorcery.  Some are short stories, some are novellas but all of them are worth reading.

Prime Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 30th.

I particularly enjoy reading this type of book.  Short stories are my thing and fantasy is fun to read.  Some of it is wicked, some of it tantalizes you into reading more by the author, and all of it is good.

My three favorites are:

The Tower of the Elephant by Robert E. Howard:  The beggar became a sorcerer but taking revenge won't save him...

Hero at the Gates by Tanith Lee:  He's not really a hero but he does what he needs to do.

First Blood by Elizabeth Moon:  This was my favorite.  He's young, on his first war tour but he doesn't give up despite the danger and he has a surprise at the end.

None of the stories are disappointing.  If you like fantasy, jump in and enjoy some old classics as well as the new ones.  Tell me which ones you liked best!
