Fantasy fans rejoice! Seven years after writer and editor Robert Silverberg made publishing history with Legends, the acclaimed anthology of original short novels by some of the greatest writers in fantasy fiction, the long-awaited second volume is here.

Each of the best-selling writers represented in these selections from Legends II returns to the fantasy universe he or she made famous throughout the world. Whether set before or after events already recounted elsewhere, whether featuring beloved characters or compelling new creations, these masterful short novels are both mesmerizing stand-alones, perfect introductions to the work of their authors, and indispensible additions to the epics on which they are based.

Diana Gabaldon turns to an important character from her Outlander saga, Lord John Grey, in Lord John and the Succubus, a supernatural thriller set in the early days of the Seven Years War.

Terry Brooks adds an exciting epilogues to The Wishsong of Shannara in Indomitable, the tale of Jair Ohmsford's desperate quest to complete the destruction of the evil Ildatch...armed only with the magic of illusion.

    " I picked it up to read some new fantasy writers. I think I've found some new series to follow. It would also be neat to see the feeling after having read the series these shorts are based on. A good, adventure-packed read. "

    " All of the stories in this volume were quite interesting. "

    " I can't imagine this book will be bad... "

    " The great thing about anthologies is discovering writers you know you should have read but have never got around to. That's especially true in this one, where authors offer short stories that take place in the worlds that made them famous. "

    " Exceedingly good book of short stories - some much stronger than others (sadly Diana Gabaldon's was one of the weaker ones) - but even the weak stories were pretty good. I especially liked Robin Hobb's and will probably pick up some of her full novels. George RR Martin, of course, is brilliant. "

    " should be widely avaliable for all to enjoy "

    " I read Diana and Anne's stories. I couldn't get into the others. Maybe just not the right time. "

    " The great thing about short story collections is that you can read them at your leisure. This is a great example of that. Great stories that can be taken in slowly. "
